In order to obtain accreditation status, teams must be comprised of experienced and qualified professionals from medical, surgical, dental, and allied health disciplines working in an interdisciplinary and coordinated system. The purpose and goal of a team is to ensure that care is provided in a coordinated and consistent manner with the proper sequencing of evaluations and treatments within the framework of the patient's overall developmental, medical, and psychological needs.

Accreditation status assures families that the team meets the standards identified as essential characteristics of quality necessary for team functioning in order to facilitate comprehensive patient care.
