FIND AN ACCREDITED PROVIDER
In the dawn of an environment of consumer choice, a new quality framework has emerged. CARF introduces ASPIRE to Excellence®. What does this mean to you?
The new framework organizes CARF's standards into logical, action-oriented business practices.
Assess the environment
The focus of your mission and vision is the person served.
Your leadership assesses the context of your environment and guides your organization towards achieving your mission.
Governance holds your leadership accountable.
The balance between where an organization is and where it needs to go is a challenge that requires thoughtful, well-planned strategies.
Developing strategy includes obtaining the input from a wide variety of sources.
And no strategy is complete without vital input from persons served and other stakeholders.
The people you serve are the reason you exist as an organization. Their feedback is essential to the design and delivery of quality services.
Input extends to funders, regulators, community members, the public and other stakeholders. Their contributions are also important.
Implement the plan
You've taken the time to strategize, get input, and now is the time to fit it all together as you implement the plan. You ensure that:
You've designed your plan, you've implemented your plan, now it's time to review your results.
You measure how well you've done against how well you wanted to do.
Now that you know your strengths and know where you need to do better, it's time to effect change and improve performance.
With input from persons served, this quality framework will guide you in to a successful future.
