MedBridge Becomes the First Organization to Receive ACHC Certification for Home Health and Hospice Onboarding and Annual Training

SEATTLE – June 25, 2024 – With reimbursement always on the line and a continuous need to hire and train new nurses and other clinical staff, home health and hospice agencies need a trusted and reliable way to educate new staff quickly and efficiently.

As part of an ongoing commitment to create the highest quality home health-focused solutions and content, MedBridge has sought and acquired certification from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for its home health and hospice onboarding and annual education, effective May 28, 2024. MedBridge courses are also certified by CHAP and accredited by ANCC.

“ACHC is thrilled to recognize MedBridge as the first organization to earn the status of ACHC Certification for its onboarding and annual staff education,” said Greg Stowell, ACHCU Associate Director of Education and Training. “Achieving certification demonstrates MedBridge’s dedication to providing high-quality solutions that benefit providers and the patients they serve.”

The certified courses are part of MedBridge In-Home Essentials, a comprehensive end-to-end solution that supports nurses and other staff members from day one and beyond. In-Home Essentials includes effective onboarding, point-of-care skills guidance, engaging microlearning, and expert-led course series focused on OASIS-E, HHVBP, and much more. 

“ACHC certification demonstrates our deep investment in creating targeted, effective home health and hospice training that aligns with established standards of excellence,” said Andrew Mickus, MedBridge Chief Content Officer. “Agencies using MedBridge can trust that they have access to the training that employees need to be effective in their roles and stay compliant with essential regulations and protocols.”
