The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAHC) announced on November 2 that it has developed a new Orthopaedic Certification program for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).
After an ASC achieves overall accreditation, it can acquire the Orthopaedic Certification to demonstrate excellence in the specialty of orthopaedics by meeting specific requirements.
The goal of the program is to demonstrate an ASC’s high quality of care and compliance with rigorous industry requirements, AAAHC says.
The Orthopaedic Certification program Standards are included in the 2018 Accreditation Handbook for Ambulatory Health Care.
