Accreditation Makes Pivot Onsite Innovations
One of the First Occupational Health Providers to Receive AAAHC Accreditation
Mount Laurel, N.J., October 12, 2022 – Pivot Onsite Innovations, the nation’s fastest growing onsite occupational health and wellness services provider, has recently been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Accreditation distinguishes Pivot Onsite Innovations from other onsite health care providers through its adherence to rigorous standards of care and safety.
Earning accreditation requires a thorough review of Pivot Onsite Innovations’ infection control, safety, hiring, clinical governance and overall health practices by AAAHC-certified auditors. This three-year accreditation status signifies that Pivot Onsite Innovations has met all nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC.
“AAAHC accreditation is a sought-after recognition in the healthcare industry and one that we are thrilled to receive. This accreditation is a testament to the continued investment in and success of our teams, technology and quality assurance processes,” said Scott Goren, Vice President of Operations for Pivot Onsite Innovations. “Not only are we among the first onsite healthcare providers to earn this distinguished status, but because of our dedication to continuous improvement and teamwork, we received this three-year accreditation on our first pass. I am grateful for everyone on our team who made this possible, led by our nursing division director, Tessa Stanaland. We look forward to maintaining this accreditation and further improving our processes and outcomes in the years ahead!”
Beyond the onsite survey that guides this accreditation process, ongoing compliance and continuous improvement are part of the accreditation maintenance mindset that a facility must integrate into its day-to-day activities after the survey has been completed. The intent of accreditation is for organizations to adopt policies and procedures that fuel ongoing QI and self-evaluation every day.
Ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC Accreditation undergo an extensive self-assessment and onsite survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory care. The survey is peer-based and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
