The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979 to promote a voluntary, peer-based, consultative and educational survey process to advance patient care. AAAHC serves as an advocate for the provision of high quality health care through the development of nationally recognized standards. A certificate of accreditation is awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC Standards. It is also recognized as the premier symbol of quality by third party payers, medical organizations, liability insurance companies, and state and federal agencies.
Northeast Digestive Health Center is proud to be AAAHC certified.
An adenoma detection rate is a reportable quality measure that indicates the proportion of screening colonoscopies performed by a physician who detects at least one histologically confirmed colorectal adenoma or adenocarcinoma.
Professional societies recommend adenoma detection rates of 20 percent or higher for female patients and 30 percent or higher for male patients as indicators of adequate colonoscopy quality. Northeast Digestive Health Center consistently sees detection rates above these goals. Our detection rate for the first quarter of 2023 is 39.36%, significantly above the recommended minimum average of 25%. This is part of our commitment to providing quality medical care and helping our patients maintain a healthy gastrointestinal system.
