ABOUT THE NHCI

Mission

The primary focus of the Credentialing Institute is to improve health care quality through comprehensive credentialing methods or systems that assess health care accreditation, licensure, education, training, and practice using the National Credentialing Standards Model® (NCSM).

Method

Based upon legislation and the scientific evidence, health care research results, and technology assessments of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), National Institutes of Health (NIH), other agencies of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and several additional governmental organizations and agencies, NCSM aims to enhance the well-being of all Americans by providing for safe and effective health care services.

Purpose

Effective health care service provisioning depends heavily upon the quality of care which is in direct correlation with the integrity and efficacy of education and training. The Credentialing Institute oversees credentialing in the form of accreditation as well as certification and licensure for qualifying persons and organizations under the National Credentialing Standards Model® (NCSM).
