AAAASF introduces new data intelligence initiative, Nebula Data Intel, LLC.
The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), a not-for-profit accrediting organization, announces its partnership with Nebula Data Intel, LLC (NDI), a new business providing specialty-specific intelligent medical data generated by participating outpatient surgical centers. The broad range of information allows benchmarking and tracking of trends on surgical outcomes, supply usage, and patient satisfaction.
Any outpatient surgical center accredited by a recognized accreditation organization is invited to participate. Participation is voluntary and costs nothing. All data is de-identified and HIPAA compliant.
“Nebula Data Intel is a unique initiative designed to combine multiple data streams to identify trends and drive informed decision making - in ways previously unavailable. This medical intelligence can be utilized throughout the healthcare industry. It’s an exciting program that focuses on improving patient safety through data intelligence,” said Dr. David Watts, AAAASF’s Board of Directors President and CEO of Nebula Data Intel, LLC.
The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) was established in 1980 to standardize and improve the quality of medical and surgical care in outpatient facilities and assure the public that patient safety is top priority in an accredited facility. More than 2,500 outpatient facilities are accredited by AAAASF, one of the largest not-for-profit accrediting organizations in the United States. Surgeons, legislators, state and national health agencies, and patients acknowledge that AAAASF sets the “gold standard” for quality patient care.
AAAASF programs include surgical, procedural, oral maxillofacial, international surgical, and dental. AAAASF is also approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to accredit ambulatory surgery centers, rehabilitation and outpatient physical therapy agencies, as well as rural health clinics.
