Peak Vista believes quality applies not only to clinical care but must be embraced organization wide. Healthcare is optimally provided through patient-centered, provider directed, comprehensive, accessible, continuous and organized care designed to meet the needs of the individual patient.
Peak Vista uses the widely accepted definition of quality given by the Institute of Medicine. We believe that quality health care should be safe, effective, patient centered, timely, efficient, and equitable.
Peak Vista is dedicated to delivering quality service in all that we do. Peak Vista’s leadership is committed to innovation and excellence in providing healthcare services and implementing organizational efficiencies. We strive to provide good stewardship and respectful use of all resources while showing respect for each
person as expressed in our cultural beliefs.
In efforts to provide high quality care to our patients, Peak Vista maintains accreditation through Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, also known as AAAHC, is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979. It is the preeminent
leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality and value for ambulatory health care through peer-based accreditation
processes, education and research.
Accreditation is awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC standards. AAAHC currently accredits over 5,000 organizations
in a wide variety of ambulatory health care settings, including ambulatory and office based surgery centers, managed care organizations, as well as Indian
and student health centers, among others. With a single focus on the ambulatory care community, AAAHC offers organizations a high quality and collaborative approach to accreditation.
