The Standards Committees oversee the development of new quality and performance programs, along with revisions to the existing standards, based on emerging best practices and new regulatory requirements. Standards Committee members represent a broad cross section of stakeholder perspectives for the programs they each support. Once Standards are developed for each accreditation program, the Standards will be posted for a “Public Comment” period to allow for feedback and suggestions prior to adoption  and publication.

If you or someone in your organizations is interested in serving on a CHQI Standards Committee and you possess experience as a subject matter expert, regulator, payer, or consumer advocate for any of the programs and services accredited by CHQI, contact Julie Irons, Manager of Accreditation at for more information.
