Margaret "Peg" Terry, PhD, RN
Vice President, Quality Assurance & Complaince, CHAP
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.
Her understanding of regulation and care delivery in the home, her constant dedication to quality, as well as her national experience and vision provide a great combination to lead our Quality team for the benefit of CHAP accredited organizations.
