Since its founding in 1980, QUAD A has pursued its mission by setting the highest standards for patient safety and standardization of care in outpatient centers worldwide. QUAD A requires 100% compliance with all accreditation standards and does not offer partial accreditation. If a facility fails to meet any standard, it must correct the deficiency or risk denial or loss of accreditation. QUAD A facilitates patient safety by regularly updating its standards based on patient data and the latest medical literature and requiring facilities to continually self-assess and evolve.
