ClearHealth Quality Institute on the Hunt for Volunteers for Accreditation Committee

On Tuesday, ClearHealth Quality Institute (CHQI) – a new accreditation organization that develops and promotes quality standards in health care by leveraging value-based purchasing metrics – announced that it is seeking volunteer members to join its new Accreditation Committee.

The CHQI Accreditation Committee will be instrumental in the launch of several CHQI programs this year, including the Telemedicine Accreditation Program, version 2.0, for telemedicine providers, and the Mental Health Parity Accreditation Program, version 1.0, for health insurers.

The Telemedicine Accreditation Program – which is being developed in collaboration with the American Telemedicine Association – is slated for launch next month.

The CHQI Accreditation Committee will represent a diverse group of expert stakeholders, including health insurers, regulators, industry leaders, employers, health care providers, and consumer advocates, and will decide whether applicants’ confidential submissions meet CHQI’s exacting but fair accreditation standards.

“The composition and responsibilities of the Accreditation Committee are at the core of the self-regulation process. The Committee will represent a broad cross section of the health care industry, from providers to consumers,” said Joel V. Brill, MD, FACP, CHQI Advisory Board Chair and Chief Medical Officer, Predictive Health. “Through impartial decision-making, the Accreditation Committee will play a vital role in fulfilling CHQI’s mission to foster positive change in health care through accreditation.”
