What is CARF-Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.
The mission of CARF is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served. CARF develops and maintains current, field-driven standards that improve the value and responsiveness of the programs and services delivered to people in need of rehabilitation and other life enhancement services; recognizes organizations that achieve accreditation through a consultative peer-review process and demonstrate their commitment to the continuous improvement of their programs and services with a focus on the needs and outcomes of the persons served; conducts accreditation research emphasizing outcomes measurement and management; provides information on common program strengths as well as areas needing improvement; and provides consultation, education, training, and publications that support organizations in achieving and maintaining accreditation of their programs and services
CARF accredited service providers enjoy international recognition for their commitment to excellence. Third-party payers, governmental agencies, and the public at-large recognize CARF accreditation as a demonstration of accountability and conformance to internationally accepted standards that promote excellence in your services.
The value of CARF accreditation is more than a certificate hanging on the wall. CARF accreditation is evidence that Harbor House strives to improve efficiency, fiscal health, and service delivery — creating a foundation for consumer satisfaction.
