Accreditation Commission rolls out telehealth certification

The Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and Health Recovery Solutions (HRS) has introduced a Distinction in Telehealth program for health care organizations, including home health providers.

Telehealth has grown in popularity during the public health emergency (PHE) and will likely find continued interest after the pandemic is over.

“Our home care partners have developed the best strategies in building remote patient monitoring telehealth programs, and we are excited for this opportunity to share their trusted best practices across the ACHC provider network,” said Jarrett Bauer, HRS CEO.

Standards for the distinction were based on telehealth clinical guidelines of the American Telemedicine Association.
