New FACT Accreditation Portal Launched
In 2015, FACT began a monumental undertaking to replace the FACTWeb Portal. FACT’s vision was to create a new system that would revolutionize the accreditation process. The goal was to improve the applicant’s ability to efficiently submit evidence to FACT; enhance the inspector experience with a streamlined approach for reviewing compliance applications, clinical outcomes, and data management; improve inspector training; and increase system flexibility to allow FACT staff to seamlessly manage the accreditation process from start to finish.
This past April, 10 organizations were selected to serve as beta testers and complete their applications in the new portal. After a successful beta test period, the new FACT Accreditation Portal launched on October 1, 2018.
“This is a major improvement over the first portal. The ease of use and the speed are complete upgrades! I appreciate everything that was incorporated into this new portal and realize that we will continue to strive to improve it. Very pleased to have been a beta tester!” states Kim Kasow, DO of the UNC Bone Marrow Transplant and Cellular Therapy Program.
Applicants with pre-existing applications in the legacy FACTWeb portal will continue with the legacy portal until the current application is finished. Going forward, all new applications will be created in the new FACT Accreditation Portal.
