If you are also accredited by CARF, COA or JCAHO, our dual accreditation process was designed for you!
The EAGLE Accreditation Program has earned appreciation and respect from other national accreditation programs. This enabled the EAGLE Accreditation Commission to offer dual accreditation with the Council on Accreditation (COA), the Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Services (CARF) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
EAGLE's dual accreditation process supports the needs of organizations wishing to pursue simultaneous accreditations. While continuing to function independently, these accrediting bodies have agreed to implement a cooperative process that permits each accrediting body to support and rely upon the other, while each remains independent and autonomous in its private deliberations and final accreditation determination.
An applicant organization pursuing dual accreditation must meet all CARF, COA or JCAHO conditions of eligibility, as well as EAGLE eligibility criteria. To eliminate duplication under a concurrent review, dual EAGLE accreditation only covers those topics that are either not addressed or are not sufficiently addressed by the other organization’s accreditation standards.
In order to apply for dual EAGLE accreditation, the organization must be in good standing with the joint accrediting body. The EAGLE Accreditation Commission’s decision to accredit is contingent upon the applying organization receiving full accreditation from the other program.
