Accreditation

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)

The AAAHC is a peer-based, not-for-profit organization that is nationally recognized for conducting extensive evaluations of ambulatory health care organizations to ensure the highest quality standards.

Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation process involves self-assessment by the organization, as well as a thorough review by the Accreditation Association's expert surveyors, who themselves have extensive experience in the ambulatory health care environment.

The accreditation certificate is a symbol that an organization is committed to providing high-quality health care and that it has demonstrated that commitment by measuring up to the Accreditation Association's high standards.

Eight standards that dental groups are measured against:

  • Rights of Patients
  • Governance
  • Administration
  • Quality of Care Provided
  • Quality Management and Improvement
  • Clinical Records
  • Professional Improvement
  • Facilities and Environment
