ACHC Launches Two New Distinctions

New offerings help respiratory providers and providers of custom mobility products demonstrate their commitment to care management and quality of life.

Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) has developed two new distinctions for DMEPOS-accredited organizations for respiratory providers and mobility specialists.

The two new services:

  • The Distinction in Clinical Respiratory Patient Management is a recognition that allows providers to demonstrate expertise in managing respiratory conditions.
  • The Distinction in Custom Mobility, a designation that recognizes first-rate providers of custom mobility products, will further help providers demonstrate their commitment to patients’ quality of life.

Each of these distinctions is available to providers accredited under the ACHC DMEPOS program.

“By offering these groundbreaking distinctions, ACHC provides innovative solutions to address healthcare market needs of specialization and differentiation that complement accreditation,” said Tim Safley, DMEPOS program director for ACHC. “Such subspecialties are unique in their design and enhance national efforts to reduce hospital readmissions. A distinction award recognizes providers who exceed industry expectations for high-quality patient care.”
