Why AHC Strives for Accreditation

Charla Thomas, COO of Analgesic Healthcare, oversees the accreditation renewal process and Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). Although Analgesic Healthcare does not require accreditation, we acknowledge the value of attaining accreditation.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a major key benchmark used to measure the quality of an organization.

Why is Accreditation Important?

Preparing for accreditation renewal will give Analgesic Healthcare the opportunity to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement and will help Analgesic Healthcare management to make critical decisions aimed at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of our business performance.  

What Will Accreditation Accomplish for Analgesic Healthcare?

By attaining accreditation, Analgesic Healthcare’s industry value will increase and position us as a provider of choice. Being a provider of choice will set us apart from other health care providers and will help us to gain the recognition and confidence of consumers.

Why Quality Improvement Program (QIP)

A QIP is an integral part of Analgesic Healthcare’s success as an industry leader because it enables us to self-assess our performance in delivering quality products and to plan for improvements.

A QIP committee (QIPC) is tasked with monitoring, tracking, reporting, and recommending corrective action plans; however, as a team, we are all responsible for QIP. While the committee recommends plans, management and staff will adopt and implement those plans. At Analgesic Healthcare, our QIP is measured by:

  • Patient Satisfaction
  • File Accuracy
  • Patient Complaints
  • Product Delivery
  • Patient Record/Compliance
  • Units Returns

Once measurements reach proposed standards for three consecutive quarters, the QIPC may remove and recommend a new measurement. The QIP will be revisited annually, if an issue arises, or to address staffing or management changes.

Revisiting Quarter 3

A review and evaluation of Q3 results are invaluable as we move into a new quarter. Our results in Q3 are as follows:

  • Patient Satisfaction: 98% satisfaction
  • File Accuracy: 99.9% accuracy
  • Patient Complaints:  <1% of patient base per quarter
  • Product Delivery: 99% on-time and accuracy
  • Patient Record/Compliance: 99% compliance
  • Units Returns: less than 5% of our new patients per quarter

Quality improvement is the key quality patient care. As we bring 2016 to a close and pivot into 2017, our CEO, Roy Edgerton, charges all staff to continue to be the Gold Standard.
