FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Orbit Medical is proud to announce that they have received accreditation from The Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC). The ACHC is a national, non-profit organization that provides accreditation programs for various providers, including home health and hospice agencies, home infusion companies, home care aides, specialty pharmacies, and home medical equipment suppliers like Orbit Medical. The ACHC was developed to help these companies improve business operations and quality of patient care.
Gaining accreditation is a voluntary activity that establishes Orbit Medical’s commitment to uphold the high standards that have been put in place by the industry’s regulatory bodies. Accreditation is not easy to attain; health providers must go through a rigorous review of ninety-six different qualifying standards and criteria in eight areas of business operations. Orbit Medical was responsible for submitting a review on the following business practices:
• Documented internal policies and procedures
• A checklist of our best practices
• Reviews of training and fiscal management records
• Quality improvement measures and corrective actions
• Customer satisfaction rates and improvement measures
ACHC then performs on-site visits to validate each standard. The Accreditation Commission for Health Care interviewed Orbit Medical’s staff members to research levels of training, product management, and health and safety standards. ACHC also reviewed customer satisfaction rates using a variety of methods, including contacting customers directly. Once ACHC had considered the entire body of evidence, they determined that Orbit Medical had indeed met the standards to become ACHC Accredited.
