CONSULTING

Weatherbee provides customized, state-of-the-art consulting services that are unmatched in the hospice industry.

Accreditation

Accreditation offers hospice providers the opportunity to stand out as a quality hospice provider and differentiate your hospice from other local and regional competitors. Weatherbee Resources’ certified accreditation consultant can help your hospice navigate the entire accreditation process and demonstrate the highest standards of performance and patient care. Our Weatherbee consultant is certified to assist with the Accreditation Commission for Healthcare, Inc., (ACHC) or Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP). Hospices that are accredited demonstrate they:

  • Have sound business growth and financial success strategies;

  • Exceed minimum hospice regulatory standards;

  • Excel in the provision of high-quality patient and family care;

  • Foster an integrated approach to continuity of care;

  • Offer professional development opportunities; and

  • Continuously assess performance and strive for constant improvement.

Weatherbee Resources’ Accreditation Consultant can guide a hospice provider through the entire accreditation process and provide a Mock Survey to assess readiness for the initial accreditation survey or recertification survey.

​By partnering with Weatherbee Resources in preparation for ACHC or CHAP accreditation, you can enjoy a discount on the application fee.

​Weatherbee also offers Policy and Procedures manuals that meet accreditation standards as well as a hospice crosswalk to assist during survey.

Services

In coordination with your hospice’s leadership team, Weatherbee will:

  • Review Policy and Procedure documents for compliance and offer recommendations for improvement (Weatherbee’s Policy and Procedure documents are currently CHAP approved and currently seeking ACHC approval);

  • Assist with the accreditation self-study to ensure adherence to the accreditation organization’s standards;

  • Ensure site-visit readiness by providing a Mock Survey;

  • Assist with the post-Mock Survey Plan of Correction, if needed;
