We’re also happy to announce our three-year re-accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)—the longest term of accreditation offered by the AAAHC. Status as an accredited organization means that GastroIntestinal Healthcare has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality healthcare set by the AAAHC. Over 6,000 ambulatory healthcare organizations across the U.S. are currently accredited by the AAAHC. AAAHC is the preeminent leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality and value for ambulatory healthcare through peer-based accreditation processes, education and research. Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an organization is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards.
