MBSAQIP works to advance safe, high-quality care for bariatric surgical patients through the accreditation of bariatric surgical centers. A bariatric surgical center achieves accreditation following a rigorous review process during which it proves that it can maintain certain physical resources, human resources, and standards of practice. All accredited centers report their outcomes to the MBSAQIP database.
Patients who have their surgery performed at a certified MBSAQIP surgical center can be assured that they have met the high standards required of their certification.
AAAHC accreditation means that the surgery center participates in on-going self evaluation, peer review and education to continuously improve its care and services. The surgery center also commits to a thorough, on-site survey by AAAHC surveyors, who are themselves health care professionals, at least every three years.
The AAAHC Certificate of Accreditation is widely recognized as a symbol of quality by third party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies and the public.
A recent study conducted by Healthcare Bluebook, Ambulatory Surgery Center Association, and Health Smart found that healthcare costs are reduced by more than $38 billion per year due to the availability of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) as an appropriate setting for outpatient procedures.
More than $5 billion of the cost reduction accrues to the patient through lower deductible and coinsurance payments. This cost reduction is driven by the fact that, in general, ASC prices are significantly lower than hospital outpatient department (HOPD) prices for the same procedure in all markets, regardless of payer.
