Gainesville, GA, May 07, 2018: AEON Global Health Corp., (AGHC: OTCQB), a growth-oriented provider of personalized, clinically actionable medical informatics and telemedicine, announced today that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Laboratory Services Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
“We are proud that the Joint Commission has provided our laboratory with this prestigious certification,” said Sonny Roshan, Founder, Chairman and CEO of AEON Global Health. “This award reflects our unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest quality of standards in all areas of our operations,” added Roshan. “AEON has always been focused first and foremost on patient care, and this is reflected in the quality of the work we produce. It is especially gratifying that the Commission has recognized our team for the dedication and effort needed to maintain this highest level of quality. Coupled with our recent accreditations in California and with Texas Medicaid, we are excited about our ever-expanding payor network.”
AEON underwent a rigorous onsite survey earlier this year. During the review, a Joint Commission expert surveyor evaluated compliance with laboratory standards related to several areas, including document and process control, healthcare-associated conditions, risk reduction, and staff qualifications and competency. The surveyor also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
