New Recertification Policy for AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award program is introducing a new recertification policy, effective for the 2014 award cycle, that impacts all current and previous AHCA/NCAL National Quality award recipients. Under this policy, Bronze and Silver Quality Award recipients will have a limited amount of time to apply for the next award level (Silver or Gold) before being designated as a “past recipient” of the award, a status that requires the facility to reapply at the Bronze level if it decides to participate in the program again.

Currently, award recipients are not limited to the number of years they can promote their center as a Quality Award recipient. Centers are responsible for reading and complying with the recertification policy, which is available in full on the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award website. In addition, there is a Frequently Asked Questions document to answer some of the common questions associated with the new policy.

Please contact quality-award@ahca.org with questions about the new policy, a center’s current status, or general questions about the National Quality Award program.
