Follow the five steps below to become a PHA-Accredited Pulmonary Hypertension Care Center.

Step 1: Submit an online application. To begin the application process, submit an application through the PHCC Online Application Portal.

Step 2: Review of online application. After submission, PHA staff will review the application to ensure all components have been received. After reviewing the application, PHA will contact you to begin the site review scheduling process.

Step 3: Site review. At a time convenient for key members of your PH program, PHA will schedule a day-long site review with two expert PH clinicians.

Step 4: Accreditation notification. After your site visit, the PHCC Review Committee will review your application and notes from the site review and notify you of the accreditation decision.

Step 5: Reaccreditation. Accreditation lasts for four years. Before you can be reaccredited, a review of your PH program will be conducted. Reaccreditation lasts for three years.
