The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, also known as CARF, is a rigorous accreditation process that focuses on rating the quality of healthcare services. CARF was founded in 1966 in order to provide the public with a platform on which to judge healthcare services. CARF is a non-profit, international service that is judged by a mix of professionals and customers. The goal in establishing this accreditation was to have a standard by which the public can trust that a business demonstrates commitment to the betterment of their patients.
The CARF accreditation is a credential that assures any prospective clients that businesses are always working to enhance the quality of their services, while providing top quality care. This is an ongoing 9 to 12 month process involving a throughout self-evaluation, on-site survey, and many staff and client interviews. The self-evaluation and on-site survey also makes suggestions on how to improve businesses. Because of this long process, surveyors are able to get a well-rounded view of the business.
