HPCO Accreditation – Registration

Welcome and thank you for your interest in HPCO's Accreditation Program. By completing this registration survey, you are indicating an interest in pursuing Accreditation with HPCO. 

We are pleased to offer an enhanced online resource to support your Accreditation process. The “SharePoint Accreditation Site” (SAS) contains:

·      A record of all current Standards, criteria and evidence requirements

·      A process to complete an internal “Compliance Assessment” 

·      Tools/documents that support the collection of evidence 

·      A visual timeline, task list, and analytical reports to help with planning ahead and tracking progress 

When a new registration is received, HPCO will issue a Participation Agreement (PA) and invoice for the registration fee via email. Please allow 1-2 weeks processing time.

Upon receipt of the signed PA and registration fee, HPCO will create a SAS for your hospice and schedule an orientation with the Accreditation Coordinator to introduce you to the tool, decide upon a timeline, and provide information on completing the application process. The hospice is then able to use the SAS to move forward in preparing for both the application and the submission of evidence. 

Please note that the hospice is allowed to negotiate a delay of any portion of the Accreditation process within the calendar year, for which all fees paid will simply rollover. Should the hospice remain unable to move forward at this deadline, all fees paid to that point - including registration, applications, and/or review fees, are forfeited and the hospice is withdrawn from participation. The hospice can begin the program again, but must register (and pay) anew. If the hospice chooses to withdraw fully at any point following registration and initial payment, fees will not be refunded.

The fee schedule is available at www.hpco.ca/accreditation (navigate to the links at the bottom of the page). Please note that the fee schedule is subject to change to ensure that HPCO is able to recover costs associated with operating the program. The updated fee schedule is posted to our website by March 31 of each year.
