  • Hospice Standards of Excellence: Effective BEGINNING October 1, 2019

    CHAP Standards of Excellence are designed for a hospice organization that provides care directly to patients. CHAP provides hospice accreditation for deemed (Medicare-certified) and non-deemed programs.

    PLEASE NOTE: These NEW standards will be effective beginning October 1, 2019. Before that date the former version of the Hospice Standards of Excellence will be in effect. To access those standards, please click here: https://education.chaplinq.org...


    CHAP Hospice Standards of Excellence are designed to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focus on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure.

    Hospice programs generally are home-based, home being defined as where the patient lives including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, group homes, and inpatient hospice units as well as private homes. The philosophy of hospice is to provide support for the patient's emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as medical symptoms as part of treating the whole person.

    CHAP’s VP of Quality Assurance and Compliance is Margaret Terry PhD, RN. Peg, as is her preference, brings a breadth of valuable experience. Peg has been the CEO of a private duty company offering homemaker and home health aide services to Area Agencies on Aging and counties in Maryland and Virginia. In her role as VP of Clinical Operations and Compliance Officer at MedStar Visiting Nurse Association in the DC/Maryland area, she also led efforts to integrate home health services with primary care-the first Blue Cross/Blue Shield primary medical home project. That practical experience and vision of new care models supported her two most recent national roles, namely as the Vice President of Quality and Innovation at the Visiting Nurses Association of America (VNAA) leading the development of evidence-based home health guidelines, as well as being the regulatory interface with CMS. Most recently as a Senior Director at the National Quality Forum (NQF), Peg directed and facilitated a critical effort to review measures for long term support services (LTSS) under Medicaid.
