Since merging the Staffing Accreditation Standards
Program with the mission, goals and objectives of the National
Healthcare Staffing Alliance (NHSA), a terrific opportunity
has presented to make the SAS Program better and even more
user friendly. While it is our well documented efforts through
SAS to create a level playing field, better communication
and respect from the client base, and a healthy competition
based on quality initiatives, we can still improve the processes
to deliver those services.
As healthcare providers continue to seek ways
to reduce risk and liability, utilizing credentialed healthcare
staffing agencies is fast becoming an acceptable practice
to validate that agencies are meeting standards of best practice.
The quality, credentials and competency of healthcare supplemental
professionals you provide to your client base is critical
to their success and your partnership with them.
Our objectives are simple and straightforward
- Third Party Oversight makes an organization better and more
involved in how their processes work.
The improvements to the credentialing program
include the introduction of a Member Only - Ten year credentialing
plan that starts with a Full Accreditation Survey, interspersed
with Annual Reports and Self Audits and culminating with another
Full Accreditation Survey in year Ten.
The positive effects of Credentialing include:
Accreditation says to clients and employees that an agency is
here for the long haul, especially a ten year commitment to
excellence through credentialing. The SAS program is anxious
to serve you, your clients, and your employees by helping you
meet the requirements set forth in the standards and achieve
- Increases business opportunities
- Enhances a higher level of service than competitors
- Retains the best and most competent staff who want to
work for employers committed to the best business practices
in the industry, and perhaps most importantly,
- Credentialing indicates a profound willingness to do
what it takes to meet the client needs for service, credibility,
