ATA-CHQI Now Accrediting Safe, Online Healthcare Services
ATA’s Accreditation Program for Online Patient Consultations which was developed in 2015 recognizes organizations providing online, real-time patient health services that comply with operational, clinical and consumer-related standards. The program promotes patient safety, transparency of operations and adherence to all relevant laws and regulations. Recognition through the accreditation program is an organizational benchmark to assure patients, payers and consumers that the organization’s online patient consultative services meets the industry standards and organizational for the program.
In May 2017, ATA executed a strategic partnership agreement with ClearHealth Quality Institute (www.chqi.com) in Annapolis, MD to manage the day-to-day operations of the program, its committees, and stakeholders. The transfer of operations to an independent third party entity enhances the integrity of the program and the grant of accreditation earned by successful applicants.
