The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), founded in 1979, has become the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 5,000 organizations accredited in the US. The AAAHC accredits a wide variety of health care organizations including ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery centers, primary care practices, managed care organizations, student health centers, and large medical and dental group practices.
The AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high quality health care and patient safety. The comapny offers health care organizations of all types and specialties a unique peer-based review system that adopts a collaborative, consultative and educational approach to help them meet internationally recognized AAAHC Standards.
In 2010, AAAHC International was formed to bring the same process of peer review to health care organizations worldwide. Since then, AAAHC International has helped organizations in Costa Rica, Peru, and India to increase their quality of care and level of patient safety.
