Solutions In Sight, One of Three AAAHC Accredited Office-Based Ophthalmic Surgery Suites in the State
Solutions In Sight Laser and Surgery Suite achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) in 2010. Accreditation distinguishes this office-based suite from many other outpatient surgical facilities by providing a safe work environment and the highest quality of care to patients.
Status as an accredited organization means Solutions In Sight Laser and Surgery Suite has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the Accreditation Association.
More than 4,500 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all undergoing the on-site survey are granted accreditation.
“We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Constance J. Ooten, OR Manager of Solutions In Sight Laser and Surgery Suite. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that the AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means that we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by the AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by the Accreditation Association’s expert surveyors – volunteer 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. “Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our first responsibility is to our patients and the quality of care we provide,” said Ooten.
AAAHC accreditation is specifically for organizations that provide diagnostic or medical care on an outpatient basis – where an overnight stay would not be required. Among the types of ambulatory health care organizations that can seek AAAHC accreditation are ambulatory and office-based surgery centers, single and multi-specialty group practices, college health centers, dental group practices, community health centers, occupational health centers and managed care organizations.
