Now Open! Intent to Apply for 2017 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program

Want to enhance organizational success? Want to prepare for the regulatory future? Want to have superior performance outcome?

If you answered YES to any or all of the above be sure to submit your Intent to Apply (ITA) for a 2017 Quality Award by 8 pm EST November 17, 2016!

Submitting an Intent to Apply is not only the first step in applying for a 2017 Quality Award but it also has two key benefits:

  • The overall application fee is reduced up to $700—a $200 savings for Bronze applicants, a $400 savings for Silver; and $700 savings for Gold.
  • Weekly tips on writing a successful application from Quality Award staff after the Intent to Apply deadline till the application deadline. 

Applicants may apply for three progressive levels of awards: Bronze, Silver, or Gold, each of which requires a more detailed and comprehensive demonstration of systematic quality. Centers must receive an award at each level to progress to the next level.

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program recognizes long term and post-acute care providers across the nation that strive for improved quality care. The program sets high standards for quality based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence criteria and encourages organizations to commit, achieve, and excel in quality performance.
