*Random review number is never greater than 50% of the discipline annual call volume.

**ECNS calculation is not provided by the calculator. Please refer to the Twenty Points to determine the random calculation for ECNS.

 

The minimum number of random case reviews required for Accreditation has been reduced for agencies with discipline call volumes below 43,333. These new minimum quantities have been scientifically validated and have a margin of error of +/- 3%. Which means that the Academy is confident that the lower minimum quantities will provide an accurate indication of agency performance.

For agencies using multiple protocols, there is also even a lower minimum quantity for the second and third disciplines.

The purpose for these lower random audits is two-fold:

1.     to continue to provide a statistically significant number of random reviews to be used for agency performance reporting; which is one of the main components of accreditation

2.     to provide the agency with the ability to conduct focused audits; these audits are specifically selected for review based on agency-identified criteria or IAED recommendations

For more information on random and focused reviews, please refer the pages 3.3-3.5 in the 6th Edition of the Quality Assurance Course Manual
