Medical equipment company Breath of Life (Sherman, Texas) has received Exemplary Provider accreditation for Patient-Centered Respiratory Home from accrediting organization The Compliance Team Inc.
Breath of Life specializes in clinical respiratory services and is also a TCT accreditation recipient for Medicare Part-B DEMEPOS. TCT’s latest accreditation designation is specifically designed to help respiratory care professionals perform at the top of their license.
The Patient-Centered Respiratory Home designation is intended to enhance patient management practices through concise measures that cover care planning, provider coordination and communication between respiratory specialists and prescribers. The program recently won an HMEB New Product of the Year Award for 2018.
Sandra Canally, the founder and CEO of TCT, explained the need for the new accreditation designation saying, “Leading up to the launch of our Respiratory Home program there was a growing realization of the need for better communication and coordination regarding respiratory care management. This new program sets in place quality standards that guide clinical respiratory providers to better engage with their chronic care patients.”
Currently, Patient-Centered Respiratory Home is the only accreditation designation that recognizes respiratory HMEs in regard to care coordination with the medical community, according to TCT.
