For Laser Spine Institute, accreditations represent our dedication to our patients, helping ensure that they receive the highest quality care consistent with a comprehensive set of national health standards. That’s why we strive daily to meet the rigorous guidelines put forth by The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The AAAHC is a private, nonprofit organization that aims to constantly improve and promote quality, safety and value for ambulatory patients (patients who receive health care but are not admitted to a hospital overnight). Since 1979, AAAHC has accredited over 4,600 organizations in many different health care settings after completing a thorough peer assessment and consultation. Accreditation with AAAHC means that organizations may also meet regional regulatory requirements and can obtain certain licenses. In addition, accredited organizations gain a competitive edge over other unaccredited ambulatory health care facilities.
Laser Spine Institute Philadelphia
Our accreditation with AAAHC means that patients who come to Laser Spine Institute’s state-of-the-art facility in Philadelphia receive a first-class health care experience for their bulging or herniated disc, bone spurs and other spinal conditions, from the initial consultation through postoperative assessments. Laser Spine Institute Philadelphia welcomes patients seeking effective minimally invasive surgery into our 17,000-square-foot facility. As part of the accreditation process, AAAHC’s team of expert surveyors toured our Philadelphia location and reviewed our administrative processes, medical procedures and equipment. Laser Spine Institute Philadelphia voluntarily underwent an extensive self-assessment and completed a comprehensive review of AAAHC’s core and adjunct standards, some of which include:
- Rights of patients
- Quality of care provided
- Clinical records and health information
- Infection prevention and control safety
- Anesthesia services
- Diagnostic and other imaging services
- Health education and health promotion
