Compass Rose Health Plan Achieves AAAHC Accreditation
The Compass Rose Health Plan is pleased to announce that we have achieved accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Status as an accredited organization means the Compass Rose Health Plan has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC and distinguishes the Compass Rose Health Plan from many other health plans.
AAAHC accreditation is conducted by an independent, not-for-profit organization, which closely examines organizations to ensure that nationally recognized standards are met and that the highest quality of care is being provided to members.
Early September, the Compass Rose Health plan underwent an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors. The survey was consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help the Plan improve care and services for our members. It was a good reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide, and we are proud of our achievement as not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, founded in 1979, is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 6,000 organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC accredits a variety of organizations including, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery centers, endoscopy centers, student health centers, military health care clinics, and large medical and dental practices. AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards and through its survey and accreditation programs. AAAHC accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality by third-party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies and the public.
