Spring House, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
American Diabetes Services, one of the leading diabetes suppliers for diabetic testing supplies, successfully fulfilled the requirements for receiving the Exemplary Provider(tm) Certificate of Accreditation from The Compliance Team, Inc.; a nationally recognized health care accreditation organization based in Ambler, Pennsylvania.
After learning of his company's exemplary performance during the Compliance Team's recent validation visit, Robert Weinroth, President of American Diabetes Services, was most pleased. "We consider this a great accomplishment," he exclaimed. "Everyone associated can be justifiably proud of their performance in helping us become one of the few diabetes suppliers to receive this honor."
Sandra Canally, RN, the founder and president of the Compliance Team, observed that Robert Weinroth's family business is the most recent successful participant in the DME industry's most comprehensive and innovative accreditation program. "Robert Weinroth and all of his staff have done a terrific job. They are a tremendous example of a safe, honest and caring specialty home care provider that is most deserving of this recognition," declared Ms. Canally.
In addition to putting in place fraud and abuse awareness safeguards to their health services, American Diabetes Services have implemented patient care improvement plans as part of a rigorous continuously measured accreditation process. The program features annual validation visits by this health care accreditation organization and requires scoring of 90% or better to achieve accredited status. It also requires that American Diabetes Services perform patient Outcomes Tracking with all their diabetes health services that are then reviewed quarterly by the Compliance Team.
"We choose Exemplary Provider(tm) Accreditation because the Compliance Team's validation process was simply the best and most sensible way for us to meet the accreditation requirements of the Medicare Modernization Act. At the same time, we see their accreditation as a quality recognition branding opportunity that highlights our on-going commitment to maintaining the highest levels of patient care excellence to continue to be one of the leading diabetes suppliers," Robert Weinroth concluded.
