AUCP Earns National Recognition
ALLEGHENIES UNITED CEREBRAL PALSY EARNS NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR CASE MANAGEMENT – LONG-TERM SERVICES AND SUPPORTS (CM-LTSS)
The National Committee for Quality Assurance has announced that Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy’s (ALUCP) Service Coordination, a provider of services to persons with disabilities and case management, located in Johnstown, PA has received a 3-year Accreditation for its Service Coordination program.
The mission of NCQA is to improve health care for all Americans and much of their work deals with the quality of health plans, practices and clinicians. However, because so many other organizations can directly affect quality, NCQA recently expanded the accreditation process to include Home and Community Based Organizations that manage patients with complex needs. Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy’s CEO, Tammy Rhoades welcomed the opportunity to be an early adopter for the new accreditation process and put her agency to the test. The Case Management – Long-Term Services and Supports Accreditation was earned by Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long‐term, participative relationships.
NCQA Case Management – Long-Term Services and Supports Accreditation raises the bar in defining quality case management. The 3-year Accreditation awarded to Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy demonstrates their dedication to quality and commitment to providing high quality, and exceptional person-centered care to the individuals they serve.
