AHCA/NCAL Quality Award Portal

Rick Patterson

The National Quality Award Program is pleased to announce that the 2019 application packets are now available online. The intent to apply deadline is November 8th, 2018 and application deadline is January 31st, 2019.  

The Quality Award Program has also launched its new online application and payment portal. All members will need to submit their applications and payment online using the new system moving forward. The online portal will allow members to easily submit applications and payments in one location and view their award history.

We encourage all corporations to set up at least one Corporate Account Administrator before the end of the month. The Corporate Account Administrator(s), typically one or more staff from the corporate office, will have access to all associated centers in the Quality Award Portal, and can manage each center's specific administrative functions. The Administrator will be able to view, comment, and submit their center(s) application(s) and payment(s). This role will grant access to all staff approved to work in the online portal. Additional detail on the various user roles in the Quality Award Portal can be found in the attached document, "User Roles and Descriptions". Finally, the attached help document titled "Getting Access to a Center or Corporation" provides instructions on getting set up as a Corporate Account Administrator.

The Quality Award team will be hosting a Quality Award Portal How To webinar on September 11th at 1 PM ET. Members can register for this webinar here.

Questions can be directed to the Quality Award team at qualityaward@ahca.org.
