RHC Accreditation

RHC Accreditation can be a daunting task for rural clinic, but with CRHC’s help we can make it a streamlined process!

Activities include mapping and redesigning workflow, evaluating current referral processes, developing customer service standards, creating a brand for your clinic and implementing Patient and Family engagement activities including developing a Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC).
