The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) has opened registration for 2020 Benchmarking Studies. Along with the introduction of a new study, Allergy Documentation, the 2020 studies feature annual subscription pricing which increases the value for participating organizations.

January–June Offerings:

  • Allergy Documentation
  • Medication Reconciliation
  • Safe Injection Practices
  • Colonoscopy
  • YAG Laser Posterior Capsulotomy

July–December Offerings:

  • Allergy Documentation
  • Medication Reconciliation
  • Safe Injection Practices
  • Cataract with Lens Insertion
  • Esophagogastroduodenoscopy

“With our benchmarking studies, we are able to dive deeper into performance metrics and best practices for high volume procedures and high deficiency accreditation Standards,” said Naomi Kuznets, Ph.D., vice president and senior director for AAAHC Institute for Quality Improvement. “This ensures we address the quality improvement issues most pertinent to ambulatory organizations.”

On October 31, all organizations will find registration information for the benchmarking subscription program through the AAAHC website: https://www.aaahc.org/quality/benchmarking-studies/
