The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) welcomes organizations to attend its second virtual Achieving Accreditation conference of the year. Taking place December 7-10, the interactive, immersive conference is designed to help organizations learn about and prepare for their AAAHC survey while developing a deeper understanding of AAAHC Standards.

Scheduled activities feature opportunities to connect with Accreditation Services team members and visit virtual booths that are targeted to primary care or ambulatory surgery and procedural centers. Ongoing engagement and survey readiness to support AAAHC’s 1095 Strong, quality every day philosophy is the driving force behind Achieving Accreditation. Additionally, the conference will offer attendees the opportunity to virtually meet one-on-one with faculty and peers, promoting greater information transfer and networking opportunities.

“We encourage all attendees to take advantage of the virtual, one-on-one face time that Achieving Accreditation will offer using a specially designed online platform,” said Noel Adachi, MBA, president and CEO of AAAHC. “Having the opportunity to connect with people organically, ask questions, and discuss the Standards in more detail with peers as well as the AAAHC staff will help spread best practices and inspire organizations to continue their mission of improving health care quality through accreditation.”

Additionally, December’s conference will provide live panels, break-out sessions, and a comprehensive review of the recently launched v41 Standards. Content will be tailored to the needs of primary care and surgical/procedural organizations. Other sessions will include:

  • Strengthening Your Quality Improvement Journey
  • Core and Adjunct Standards
  • Preparing for Your Accreditation Survey
  • Understanding Life Safety Codes
  • Keynotes, Special Topics, and engaging virtual activities
