Ambulatory Accreditation (AMB)
Physicians often seek accreditation for their facilities to demonstrate to their patients and communities their commitment to quality and patient safety. Many facilities seek accreditation voluntarily; others are required to do so to meet state, professional society, or association requirements.
IMQ’s Ambulatory Program accredits a wide range of facilities (see side bar). The program offers facilities a practical, meaningful, and cost-effective method for ensuring quality health care and achieving accreditation. IMQ is recognized by authorities in a number of states and has expanded its programs to include facilities around the country.
