Let's Get Started!

Step One: We Need to Establish an Account for You
In order for your hospital to be accredited, you will need to complete a simple application.
To do so, we must first create an account for you. Please complete the information below.

Step Two: Check Your In-Box
Once we have established your account, you will receive an email from us entitled: "Your CIHQ Accreditation Account has been created".
Please check your spam filters or junk mail in case your hospital's email system does not recognize us.
If you do not receive an email from us within 48 hours, please email Debbie Benson or call (866) 324-5080 for assistance.

Step Three: Log Into Your Account and Complete Your Application
In the body of the email will be a link that will take you directly to your hospital's account. Enter your user name and password.
Then you will be able to complete and submit your application for accreditation.

Step Four: Get Your Medicare Enrollment Application (Form 855A)
If your hospital is using CIHQ accreditation for deemed status purposes, you'll need to upload a copy of your Medicare Enrollment Application (also known as the 855A) during the application process.
This form lists all physical addresses that your hospital applied to Medicare for as part of obtaining/maintaining its Medicare Certification Number (CCN). We will need this information to assure that your accreditation is appropriately processed by CMS.
