SkinCare Physicians achieves maximum term of AAAHC Accreditation

Published on Jul 23rd, 2013 by Christine Foley

SkinCare Physicians achieves AAAHC accreditationEvery three years, SkinCare Physicians (SCP) undergoes a rigorous process of preparing for accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). AAAHC Accreditation is an external, independent process of evaluating a healthcare organization’s policies, procedures, processes and outcomes against nationally-recognized standards. This accreditation is important as health care quality issues are gaining prominence in both public and professional arenas.

In May 2013, following an in-depth, 194 page self-assessment, SCP went through a thorough two day, on-site review by two AAAHC expert surveyors.

The surveyors reviewed every operational area of SCP including:

  • Rights of Patients
  • Governance
  • Credentialing
  • Administration
  • Quality of Care
  • Quality Management and Improvement
  • Peer Review and Risk Management
  • Clinical Records
  • Infection Prevention and Control
  • Safety
  • Facilities and Environment
  • Anesthesia
  • Surgical Services
  • Pharmaceutical Services
  • Pathology and Medical Lab Services
  • Teaching and Publications
  • Research Activities

At the end of the on-site survey, the AAAHC surveyors commented on the mutual respect and admiration between the staff and the physicians, and on the evident enjoyment of everyone working at SCP. One of them added: “SkinCare Physicians, Inc.  is a renowned dermatology medical group practice which occupies a spacious, beautiful, state of the art facility, and provides compassionate, warm, friendly environment for its patients while always treating them with the utmost respect and dignity.”
