The Macomb-Oakland Regional Center, Inc. (MORC) has received a three-year accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NQCA) for Case Management for Long Term Services and Supports. MORC is the first agency in Michigan primarily serving individuals with developmental disabilities to receive this accreditation.
The accreditation, which will extend through 2020, results from findings during NCQA’s on-site survey at MORC earlier this month. NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations. It also recognizes clinicians and practices in key areas of performance. NCQA is committed to providing health care quality information for consumers, purchasers, health care providers and researchers.
“Case Management Accreditation moves us closer to measuring quality across population health management initiatives,” said Margaret E. O’Kane, President, NCQA. “Not only does it add value to existing quality improvement efforts; it also demonstrates an organization’s commitment to the highest degree of improving the quality of their patients’ care.”
“We are proud and honored to receive this prestigious distinction of quality from NCQA,” says MORC Chief Executive Officer, Dennis Bott. “It reflects our longstanding commitment and leadership in providing high quality services and supports to those with intellectual disabilities. We look forward to building on this success in the future.”
