Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP)
Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) focuses on the "process." The CHAP standards address the organization as a whole and guide the organization in focusing on the structure, function, quality, resources (human, fiscal and physical) and long-term viability. Many organizations have shared that the process assisted them in identifying better ways of conducting business and providing the quality of services for which they want to be recognized. CHAP is approved for diabetic supplies, canes, crutches, walkers, commode chairs, hospital beds, traction equipment; Appendix A: respiratory equipment, supplies and services; Appendix B: manual wheelchairs and power mobility devices; Appendix C: orthotics and prosthetic devices.
