What we do


Institute for Quality ImprovementThe AAAHC Institute for Quality Improvement conducts research and designs tools to improve the quality of health care. 


Our projects include:

  • Awards - to recognize and disseminate information on exemplary quality improvement programs
  • Publications - including QI workbooks, patient safety toolkits, study results, AAAHC AENEID Report

    The AAAHC AENEID Report analyzes data from AAAHC surveys to identify trends in compliance with AAAHC accreditation Standards. This analysis is used by AAAHC in the development of education and other resources to assist organizations in achieving compliance and by organizations to identify areas of strength and potential weakness. Read the current Report
  • Studies - to help organizations gather benchmarking and other data that can be used for quality improvement

We also participate in national quality improvement meetings such as those of the National Quality Forum and in the US Dept of Health and Human Services efforts to eliminate healthcare acquired infections (HAIs).
