Meeting the standards online — and offline.
While HQAA places great emphasis on thorough online documentation review, our
on-site surveys are every bit as meticulous. All site visits are unannounced
and not only verify the submitted documentation, but include detailed observation
of patient care and processes. As a result, HQAA consistently garners high customer
satisfaction ratings with their accredited providers.
"The reason we chose HQAA was that HQAA WAS OUR SOLUTION ... we can pursue
accreditation at times that fit our schedule. At first the Internet design was
intimidating to me, but now I realize that HQAA is our only hope of maintaining high
standards in our business."
