It is often said in the contracting world that “You’re as Good as Your Last Audit”. HPM Corporation is very proud to announce that it has completed another successful Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) audit at our clinics at U.S. Department of Energy Hanford site! Great performance by an Outstanding Medical Team! HPMC is proud to be a prime contractor at DOE's Hanford site. The HPMC OMS program is one of the largest occupational medicine programs in the entire DOE complex. As the prime contractor, HPMC has complete responsibility and accountability for performance under this DOE first-in-kind hybrid contract.
The diversity and complexity of work performed at Hanford requires a high quality, robust, and responsive occupational medical program. The caliber of our professional and technical staff is second-to-none and has resulted in HPMC OMS receiving, once again, Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) accreditation.
AAAHC, or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979 to assist ambulatory health care organizations in improving the quality of care provided to patients. AAAHC does this by establishing, reviewing, and revising Standards, measuring performance, and providing consultation and education. Accreditation is an external, independent review of a health care delivery organization against nationally-accepted standards and its own policies, procedures, processes and outcomes. In other words: Is the organization delivering safe, high-quality patient care in the way that it says it will? AAAHC accreditation means that the organization participates in on-going self-evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The organization also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.
This AAAHC accreditation is one of the many differentiators that makes HPM Corporation the benchmark for Occupational Medicine throughout all sectors of business.
