CARF International accreditation provides a visible symbol that assures the public of a provider’s commitment to continually enhance the quality of services and programs with a focus on the satisfaction of the persons served.

Our surveyors use a consultative approach during the survey process to assist you in improving the quality and value of your organization’s offerings. Each survey team is selected based upon a match of the surveyors’ areas of expertise and the organization’s unique needs.

Service providers earning CARF accreditation are recognized for their ongoing innovation and continued conformance to the standards. In addition to demonstrating solid business practices, accredited providers also enjoy:

  • Fiscal savings: Financial institutions, including rating agencies, investment bankers, and insurance carriers, look for accreditation as a sign of financial stability. They value the rigorous due diligence that results from accreditation and respond by offering savings on future financial transactions.
  • A marketing advantage: Accreditation gives organizations a competitive edge in the eyes of prospective residents, families, caregivers, and others. Providers displaying the CARF seal stand out in today’s crowded field of provider options.
  • Risk management:¬†Accreditation can help to reduce an organization’s exposure to risk in areas such as human resources, healthcare, governance, and finance.
  • Access to an international network: Accreditation gives an organization the opportunity to collaborate, form partnerships, and share ideas with an international network of other providers that have earned accreditation.

Why choose CARF over other accreditors? CARF stands for continuous quality improvement with a focus on the satisfaction of persons served. CARF accreditation makes a difference!
