CHAPS offers on-line service
Home health agencies accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Program in Washington, DC, can now move away from paper forms for accreditation information to an online system.
The organization launched the beta test of its computer-based accreditation review System (CARES), a software application consisting of a web-based portal and synchronized stand-alone application, recently and plans full implementation and deployment of the system by the end of the third-quarter in 2007.
"CHAP has made a significant long-term commitment to bring this new technology on-line to better serve its customers and staff, states Terry A. Duncombe, CHAP president and CEO. "CHAP CARES enhances our ability to more efficiently benchmark quality and develop more robust reporting tools for our customers and the national community-based health care market.
CHAP customers will benefit as they transition from a paper to an electronic process, as most functions will be completed on-line and communications between CHAP and its customers will be more fluid and timely.
