ACHC Distinction in Telehealth

A Distinction in Telehealth is now available from Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), giving healthcare providers a reliable way to gain recognition for providing a higher level of patient care through telehealth services.


With expanded focus on telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic, many providers are turning to digital telehealth options as safe, cost-effective alternatives to traditional in-person visits.


ACHC recognizes the value telehealth offers to improving patient care delivery, reducing hospital readmissions, and lowering costs for providers and patients. We collaborated with Health Recovery Solutions (HRS), a leading national provider of telehealth and remote patient monitoring solutions, to develop the accreditation distinction.


The ACHC Distinction in Telehealth is based on nationally recognized standards for optimum patient care, privacy, and safety. It is available for organizations accredited by ACHC in at least one of the following programs: Ambulatory Care, Behavioral Health, Home Health, Hospice, Private Duty, and Renal Dialysis.

"Patients today are choosing their providers, in part, based on the availability and use of technology to help them manage their health. The Distinction in Telehealth from ACHC sets FirstHealth Home Care apart from other home health agencies and has helped us to take an already top-performing program to a new level."
