ADA Introduces a Practice Accreditation Program

Posted in ADA News

ADA Introduces a Practice Accreditation Program, Invites Member Input at Town Hall Meeting on March 28th at 8:00 p.m. EASTERN

The Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA) is pleased to announce the development of a practice accreditation program to recognize clinics that meet or exceed national standards, which exemplify best clinical and business practices in the delivery of audiologic care.

Unlike certification programs, which are designed to measure the individual knowledge of audiologists, the ADA Practice Accreditation Program will measure clinic processes and procedures against a set of peer-reviewed, evidence-based standards. ADA-accredited practices will demonstrate a commitment to patient-centered care, transparency, and adherence to clinical and ethical guidelines as outlined by leading national organizations and institutions.

The ADA Accreditation Standards Committee, comprised of ADA members from across the country and across practice settings, met in Atlanta, Georgia on February 24-25, 2018 to finalize the framework and develop accreditation standards. ADA members and other key stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide input and feedback before the accreditation standards are finalized.

At this time, ADA invites all members to attend a town hall meeting on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. EASTERN to learn more about the ADA Practice Accreditation Program.

Register here for this members-only event.
