CHAP Public Health Accreditation
According to Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Through the prevention of disease and promotion of healthy lifestyles, public health providers play a pivotal role in the U.S. health care system.
While most health care services focus on one patient at a time, public health professionals develop population-based interventions in communities across the countries. Over time, this decreased the amount of money spent on health care trips to the hospital and pain and suffering of patients and their families.
Standards for these providers are based on Essential Public Health Services as defined in Public Health in America (Healthy People 2010). The standards are applicable to organizations providing services in a variety of community-based settings including local, municipal, regional, state and tribal.
Through CHAP Accreditation, we help these providers understand and meet those standards. Our combined focus on public health and CHAP Core standards ensures that providers in this field will be compliant with all local, state, federal and industry regulatory requirements, paving the way for better care and better business performance.
