Since its founding in 1980, AAAASF has pursued its mission by setting the highest standards for patient safety and standardization of care in outpatient centers worldwide. AAAASF requires 100% compliance with all accreditation standards and does not offer partial accreditation. If a facility fails to meet any standard, it must correct the deficiency or risk denial or loss of accreditation. AAAASF facilitates patient safety by regularly updating its standards based on patient data and the latest medical literature and requiring facilities to continually self-assess and evolve.
