Just a Reminder: Quality Award Program Recertification Policy

In 2014, the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program implemented a recertification policy that impacts ALL current and previous recipients. Under this policy, Bronze and Silver Quality Award recipients have three years to apply for the next award level (Silver or Gold) before being designated as a “past recipient” of the award. As a past recipient, an organization must reapply at the Bronze level if they decide to participate in the program again.

The complete recertification policy and Frequently Asked Questions are available on the Quality Award website here. It is important to note that all recipients who achieved their awards in or before 2014 have until 2017 to apply to the next level award.

The purpose of the policy is to maintain the integrity of the program, embrace new standards of care, and promote continued growth of member organizations on the quality journey.  For more information on the benefits of the program, click here.
