The deadline for the Intent to Apply for the 2022 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program is November 11th! AHCA/NCAL encourages applicants who plan to apply for a Quality Award to submit an intent to apply by logging into the Quality Award Portal before the deadline on November 11, 2021. Applying for a National Quality Award provides a framework that can be used to prepare for and make critical improvements and serves as a team building activity to engage staff across all levels. While not mandatory, applicants who submit an ITA will automatically save money on their overall application fee. No paperwork is needed.
The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program provides a pathway for long term and post-acute care providers to journey towards performance excellence through the application for and receipt of three progressive levels of awards: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Application packets and other resources to help start and continue your journey are available on the Quality Award website.
