Monitoring the Healthcare of a Nation

Welcome to AHFSA

The Association of Health Facility Survey Agencies (AHFSA) web site has been developed to provide information about our organization, to allow us to share information about the programs we are responible for, and to offer links to other web sites where interested persons can learn about licensing, certifying, and inspecting health care providers.  Feel free to explore the site and learn more about us.

AHFSA is a not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for health care regulatory agency directors and managers to address common interests, concerns, and health care program issues.  The state licensing and certification agencies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are members of our organization.

I hope you find this site informative and useful.  Add us to your "Favorites" list and please share your comments or suggestions about the site with our Corresponding Secretary at  cindy.deporter@dhhs.nc.gov
