What is Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP)?

After a thorough survey and audit of its home health, home care, hospice and palliative care software solutions, Axxess is the first healthcare software solution to be awarded the seal of “CHAP Verified.” Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) was the first accrediting body for home and community-based health care organizations when it was created in 1965.

To earn the CHAP Verified status, Axxess was subject to a rigorous site visit similar to what is experienced by healthcare organizations, with opening and closing conferences, interviews, a review of records and quality reporting for its four care-at-home software platforms. The survey and audit helped to ensure Axxess software meets quality and compliance requirements of CHAP standards. Throughout the process, the actual CHAP standards were discussed and reviewed as part of the dialogue for verification.
