Online PR News – 01-April-2013 – AUSTIN TEXAS – Body By Beleza, the Cedar Park location of Austin TX based Beleza MedSpa, recently earned certification by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, or AAAHC. Accreditation distinguishes this office based cosmetic surgery center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation
Status as an accredited organization means Beleza Medspa has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC. Not all ambulatory health care organizations seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous on-site survey process are granted accreditation
Not required for an office based cosmetic surgery center, Beleza's owner and supervising physician, Lawrence Broder, M.D., pursued a voluntary review of the practice by the accreditation agency. Accreditation ensures that a medical office meets strict guidelines for staff knowledge, patient safety and patient privacy.
Recent news coverage about patient safety and increased regulation of medical spas and cosmetic surgery reminds patients to seek out the most qualified and credentialed practitioners. “We believe our patients deserve the best,” stated Dr. Broder. “When you see our certificate of accreditation, you will know that AAAHC, an independent, not-for-profit organization, has closely examined our facility and procedures. It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.”
During a two-day visit to the office, a representative of the accrediting agency examined the facility based on an extensive checklist that evaluates every stage of the patient experience in addition to back-office operations. Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
"Our first goal was to build a state of the art office based cosmetic surgery center in Cedar Park," reported Dr. Broder. "Our second task was to achieve AAAHC accreditation to ensure that we are meeting national standards for patient care and safety." "Going through the process challenged us to find better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide."
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, founded in 1979, is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 5,000 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.
