Accreditation is a process that evaluates and documents the quality of services provided by a health care facility or program. Accreditation provides an outside assessment of the quality of care, which can then be used as evidence for other third-party payers for reimbursement.
Licensure is the authorization granted by a government agency to operate a particular type of business or perform a particular type of professional service. For example, the state issues licenses to doctors and nurses, which authorizes them to practice their profession in that state. To obtain a license, you must go through an application process with the state or district’s regulatory agency. Licensing doesn’t always assess if a health care facility provides quality services or meets national standards.
