Accreditation

The American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA) is proud to partner with Accreditation Commission for Healthcare (ACHC) to offer its members a special accreditation option.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a process of review that healthcare organizations participate in to demonstrate the ability to meet predetermined criteria and standards of accreditation established by a professional accrediting organization. Accreditation represents agencies as credible and reputable organizations dedicated to ongoing and continuous compliance with the highest standard of quality.

Why Achieve Accreditation?

Accreditation offers healthcare organizations the unique opportunity for an independent third party to review business processes and identify potential areas for improvement. By undergoing the accreditation process, sleep providers can enhance the quality of patient care, create a distinction among competition, and improve business efficiencies.
