Seattle, WA – MedBridge, the industry-leading digital health solution for healthcare professionals and organizations across the care continuum, announced today that their onboarding courses for home health and hospice are now verified by the Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP).

By acquiring CHAP verification, MedBridge further establishes itself as a leader in home health and hospice training, providing the highest quality content on the market to improve the clinician experience and quality of care.
“The CHAP Verified Seal is a key differentiator for home health and hospice agencies seeking to provide their staff with the best-in-class onboarding and skills training, and MedBridge is one of the first education and training providers to obtain this prestigious status,” said Andrew Mickus, Chief Content Officer at MedBridge. “We’re proud that the high quality educational resources that we’ve created meet those stringent standards, positioning us as leaders in quality and innovation.”
After completing the rigorous evaluation, MedBridge’s onboarding education shows no roadblocks to executing the CHAP Standards of Excellence, and innovates to improve the delivery of high quality care met, earning them CHAP’s verified status.
