Headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, ARS provides comprehensive web-based resources to acute care and critical access hospitals to help them be successful in the CMS survey and certification process, as well as accreditation by deeming agencies.  Services include comprehensive resource and reference libraries including access to regulatory and accreditation requirements, standards interpretation, alerts to changes in regulations, monthly audio conferences, staff training and continuing education modules, and more!

The Maryland Patient Safety Center, in collaboration with Courtemanche & Associates, has created a patient safety certification for organizations. The program is designed to provide organizational certification through Patient Safety Champions, with the Patient Safety Officer as the leader, who network with individuals at all levels of the organization, clinical and non-clinical, and share critical risk reduction strategies to eliminate errors and enhance safety culture throughout the organization.

NAHQ defines the standard of excellence for the healthcare quality profession and equips professionals and organizations to meet these standards. NAHQ offers the only accredited certification in healthcare quality – the CPHQ – and more than 9,000 healthcare professionals hold this designation. NAHQ provides extensive educational programming, including a Quality Principles program for those new to the field, preparation programs for CPHQ certification, and the industry-elevating Q Essentials Competencies for advanced and master practitioners in healthcare quality.
