ACHC's mission and values
Skip Navigation Links Home > About ACHC


Welcome to Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), a national organization developed by homecare and alternate-site healthcare industry providers. Our board, advisors, surveyors and staff are committed to providing the industry with an accreditation program that helps organizations improve business operations, quality of patient care and services.

ACHC is an independent, private, not-for-profit corporation established in 1986. The Association for Home & Hospice Care (AHHC) of North Carolina established ACHC to ensure quality, patient-focused, clearly written accreditation standards for in-home aide services. The values that guided our initial standards continue to lead our organization today.

ACHC has gained respect and recognition as an accrediting organization uniquely committed to health care providers. We have adopted a participatory approach to standards development that actively solicits the input of those most knowledgeable about current approaches to care. The result is a set of practical standards that promotes quality services and ensures optimum care for the patient. The entire accreditation process is a collaborative, educational, and genuinely patient-focused approach. 


Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is dedicated to delivering the best possible experience and to partnering with organizations and healthcare professionals that seek accreditation and related services.
