Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) - Accreditation

AXIOM is focused on successfully assisting today’s healthcare organizations. It’s our commitment to assist organizations with accreditation standards compliance, overall survey processes and operational issues.


Accrediting Bodies:

  • The Joint Commission (TJC)
  • Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)
  • American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF)
  • Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP)
  • Medicare/CMS Certification

Axiom’s Principals have successfully held a number of administrative and clinical roles; we understand the issues that arise in managing the day-to-day operations, activities and challenges it creates when trying to prepare for an accreditation survey or open a new ASC.

AXIOM can customize its consulting services based on your organizational needs, including:

  • ASC accreditation
  • Create and manage a continuous survey readiness program, customized to your organization’s needs
  • Implementation of new policies/protocols, forms, performance improvement tools to assist in implementing standards compliance
  • Education and training for your organization
  • Coordinate root cause analysis and action plans related to sentinel/adverse events
  • Facilitate the “self assessment” and PPR process under The Joint Commission standards
  • Complete a thorough survey preparation
  • Conduct an organization wide mock survey to determine overall compliance with applicable accrediting body standards and Medicare/CMS Certification.
  • Provide a facility specific educational question and answer sessions with staff on the survey process
  • Provide an ongoing operational assessment based on survey findings
  • Provide post-survey assistance responding to or appealing measures of success or Requirements for Improvements (RFI’s) recommendations
  • Assist with responses and corrective measures for State Plans of Correction (POC’s)

AXIOM‘s consultants have gained extensive knowledge of the accreditation survey process by successfully completing numerous surveys. We understand the overall process and know what surveyors and accrediting bodies want to see in the interpretation of the standards. It is our goal to customize each consulting experience to provide your organization with not only the ability to complete the survey process and obtain accreditation, but also take ownership and understand the process. AXIOM also assists your organization in learning from the experience and continuing to provide process improvements and self assessment as a means to provide quality patient care.
