SOLEO HEALTH AWARDED HOME CARE ACCREDITATION FROM THE JOINT COMMISSION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 SHARON HILL, Pa., (August 31, 2015) – Soleo Health, “Soleo,” an innovative leader in specialty infusion, today announced it today that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by demonstrating compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.  

 Soleo Health underwent a rigorous on-site survey in July 2015. During the survey, compliance with home care standards reflecting key organization areas was evaluated, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership.

 Established in 1988, The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation program supports the efforts of its accredited organizations to help deliver safe, high quality care and services. More than 6,000 home care programs currently maintain accreditation, awarded for a three-year period, by The Joint Commission.

 "Soleo Health is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” said Craig Vollmer, President and Chief Operating Officer.  “Our entire team is completely dedicated to enhancing our patient’s experience while striving to achieve exceptional clinical outcomes in the most cost effective manner. The Joint Commission accreditation process provided us the opportunity to review and refine our quality improvement program to continue to meet our high standards," Vollmer added.

 "When individuals engage a home care provider they want to be sure that provider is capable of providing safe, quality care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, M.S., executive director, Home Care Accreditation program, The Joint Commission. “As the home care setting becomes increasingly popular, it is important that home care providers are able to demonstrate that they are capable of providing safe, high quality care.  Accreditation by The Joint Commission and the gold seal serve as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care. 

 The Joint Commission’s home care standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, home care providers and researchers, as well as industry experts, purchasers and consumers. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
