The National Committee for Quality Assurance ensures the quality of managed care plans as well as offering accreditation programs and programs to drive quality health care services. Certification and physician recognition programs support the focus on quality patient care rather than volume.
Research the Health Plan Accreditations.
Develop a proposal for your local Department of Health outlining the need for accredited health plans in your local area.
Your proposal should include specific information regarding the accreditations available, and how these accreditations can improve the overall health status of your community.
Your proposal should be at least 450 words, using data from the accreditation website you chose to support your claims and recommendations.
