Time is On Your Side

Now that the AHCA/NCAL staff is fully recovered from celebrating more than 450 National Quality Award recipients at our amazing 63rd Annual Convention & Expo (thanks to all of you who attended!), it’s time to shift focus to the coming year. 2013 is set to be another busy, quality-driven year for LTC providers. AHCA/NCAL set some pretty high standards in 2012 – but next year, we know our providers will be even stronger.

We’re already seeing members commit to quality by submitting their Intent to Apply for a 2013 National Quality Award. Don’t miss your chance to take advantages of cost-savings and additional resources – submit your Intent to Apply today!

 The deadline for Bronze, Silver and Gold applicants to submit the $75 Intent to Apply payment is November 1, 2012. Applicants who submit the Intent to Apply will pay $200 less at each award level. In addition, Quality Award staff provides regular communication about deadline reminders, tips for applying for the awards, and additional resources to applicants who submit the Intent to Apply.

Part of what makes a successful year is proper planning, time management, and goal setting. To help make 2013 your best year ever, take note of the must-hit deadlines for the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program:
