Student Health Prepares for National Accreditation

The East Carolina University Student Health Services hosted an Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Fair March 10 for its employees.

Designed to prepare employees for accreditation surveys scheduled for June 21 and 22, the event included interactive games on such topics as patient rights, quality of care and facilities and environment. Game winners were eligible to participate in drawings for prizes.

Preparation for accreditation is an ongoing process. Other preparation efforts include mock inspections, educational sessions, self-assessment of AAAHC standards, bimonthly chapter captain meetings, and updating policies.

AAAHC accreditation is a voluntary process which involves an onsite visit for surveyors to measure an ambulatory health care organization’s quality of services and performance against nationally recognized standards. Student Health Services was re-accredited in 2008.
