How the HQAA HME post-accreditation process works


1.  ACTion Plan

Tackle a new quality topic each month.
ACTion Plan is an interactive tool that helps keep your high-quality standards up-to-date with worksheets that help you maintain compliance. HQAA has assigned a quality topic for every month. ACT Accreditation Continuation Toolkit focuses on 18 different quality topics — one each month.

Work a week at a time.
Each week, you'll download a worksheet related to that month's topic, fill out the worksheet offline and, if necessary, update the corresponding standards in your HQAA Workroom.

Track your progress.
Two bar charts track your monthly and 18-month progress — keeping you up-to-date and motivated. When it comes time to reapply for accreditation, you'll be ready. 


2.  Workroom Plan

Review standards one bite at a time.
Workroom Plan is an interactive tool that helps you focus on standards related to your weekly ACTion Plan topic. You'll review the standards that are important to that week's quality topic and have the opportunity to update your HQAA Workroom, if necessary.

Know where you stand.
Two bar charts track your monthly and 18-month progress — so you know exactly where you stand on your standards. When it comes time to reapply for accreditation, your documentation will be up-to-date.
