The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, also known as AAAHC, is a private, non-profit organization. AAAHC is committed to developing standards that advance and promote patient safety, quality health care, and value in ambulatory health care settings through peer-based accreditation processes, education and research. Accreditation is awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC Standards.
Dr. Katz believes his cosmetic surgery patients deserve the very best care. Therefore, this is is why his surgical center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes this surgical practice from many other outpatient facilities. Our facility exhibits a higher standard for quality patient care, as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation.
Furthermore, accredited organization status means our office has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
