One Month Left to Apply for the 2019 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award

The 2019 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award application deadline is January 31 at 8 PM EST. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to recognize your center’s success, dedication, and improvement in quality care.

The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program recognizes long term and post-acute care organizations across the nation for quality and excellence. The program has three levels of awards: Bronze - Commitment to Quality, Silver - Achievement in Quality, and Gold - Excellence in Quality, each of which set progressively higher standards for performance. AHCA/NCAL data has found that Silver and Gold recipients perform better than the national average on key quality metrics, like the off-label use of antipsychotics, hospital readmissions and more. By moving through the three award levels, organizations improve the quality of the care and services they provide.

AHCA will also host the first-ever Bronze Early Submission Day on January 14. Join the Quality Award staff for a step-by-step, how-to on submitting your Bronze Quality Award application and payment, including a live Q&A session. Bronze applicants that submit their application on or before January 14 will be entered into a raffle for a waived application fee.

For any questions on the application process, feel free to reach out to the Quality Award team at
