Accreditation is a voluntary process through which your organization is able to measure the quality of your services/care performance against nationally-recognized standards.
Presently there are over 500 standards Pregnancy Medical Clinics must meet.
The accreditation process involves self-assessment by your organization or consultant to obtain a baseline of where you measure to the standards, as well as a thorough review by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) surveyors. Accreditation is a true third party review of your organization's care and service.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) was founded in 1979 to: "encourage and assist ambulatory health care organizations to provide the highest achievable level of care for recipients in the most efficient and economically sound manner. The AAAHC accomplishes this by the operation of a peer-based assessment, consultation, education and accreditation program." Since its inception, the AAAHC has promoted a voluntary, peer-based, consultative, and educational survey process to advance patient care. These values hold true today, as embodied in the current mission statement: "AAAHC is committed to maintaining its position as the preeminent leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality, value and measurement of performance for ambulatory health care through peer based accreditation processes, education and research." AAAHC is recognized by regulators, health plans, insurance companies and virtually every state and now internationally. AAAHC has been a great partner for Pregnancy Medical Clinics.
