1. Accreditation Services
Accreditation wants to give you the fastest and most comprehensive accreditation
tracking and reporting system out there. As such, Accreditation offers you the limited
use of its proprietary software, methodology, and services to track your services.
Specifically, Accreditation software and services are designed to:
First we create a custom profile for your surgery center with number of ORs, type of
specialties, MediCare participation, and the accreditation agency you use (AAASF,
AAASC, Joint Commission).
Using our proprietary software enabled on an internet enabled device, we capture your
required tests and data.
Accreditation software recognizes any value out of compliance or any missing data
elements and alerts you immediately. Your reports are set for compliance with your
standards. Note, Accreditation?s services are only as good as the data imputed, users
should still make sure they are imputing truthful and accurate data.
All imputed data elements are tracked and recorded by date. This data is available 24/7
through our secure website. When appropriate, reports are sent directly to Governing
Boards for immediate review.
Accreditation allows you to show relevant data and your account to licensed inspectors
that are part of recognized governing boards.
