Home Care Association of America
The mission of the Home Care Association of America, or HCAOA, is to enhance the strength and professionalism of home care providers through education and best practices. We are active supporters of the HCAOA, striving to give home care agencies a voice in federal and state legislation. Our leadership team participates in key industry events throughout the year, which demonstrates our active engagement in legislative policy affecting the home care industry. Additionally, Homewatch CareGivers proudly co-sponsored a HCAOA report titled The Value of Home Care.
Expertise in State Licensing
As the continuum of care continues its shift to focus more on the importance of in-home care, more states are requiring stricter regulations. In many states, a license is required to operate a home care agency. Our home care industry expertise and professional involvement in national regulatory organizations keep our entire franchise network in the know and poised with operational preparedness. In addition, our operational best practices for all franchisees are continually enhanced to ensure that we are meeting or beating even the most stringent of state regulations.
The tools our team at Homewatch CareGivers has created help our franchisees obtain their licenses and get their businesses started quickly. Our franchisees who apply for a license typically receive approval within 60-90 days of application receipt and sometimes sooner, depending on the state.
National Quality Forum Member
The National Quality Forum (NQF) is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. The NQF acts, under legislative authority, as an advisory committee for federal government and private sector entities.
Our membership in the NQF allows us to identify opportunities for the home care industry to educate and contribute to the national quality agenda. Homewatch CareGivers is the first home care company of its kind to become a member of NQF.
