Physician-Patient Alliance For Health & Safety Accreditation 

The Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety (PPAHS) Enhanced Ventalitory Care Accreditation is the benchmark standard of care for the management of patients with mechanical ventilation. This standard was set by the Enhanced Ventalitory Care Standards Committee.  Enhanced Ventalitory Care Accreditation benefits your healthcare facility by:

  • Giving you a competitive advantage

Achieving accreditation is a visible demonstration to patients and the community that your organization is committed to providing the highest quality services. It also sets you apart from other healthcare facilities offering the same types of procedures.

  • Reimbursement recognition

Many healthcare facilities that have implemented the Enhanced Respiratory Care program have received increased reimbursement from healthcare payers.

  • Improving liability insurance coverage

Improving patient safety and the quality of patient care reduces your liability exposure. Moreover, by enhancing risk management efforts, accreditation may improve access to, or reduce the cost of liability insurance coverage.

  • Improve patient safety and the quality of patient care

Patients and their families want the best standard of patient care. Enhanced Ventalitory Care Accreditation provides you with that mark of distinction which you can display to the public on your website, press releases, brochures, and other marketing materials. 

  • Enhancing staff education 

The accreditation process is designed to be educational. The Enhanced Ventalitory Care Accreditation process offers suggestions for approaches and strategies that may help your organization better meet the intent of the standards and, more importantly, improve the performance of day-to-day operations.


All healthcare facilities that care for patients with mechanical ventilation are eligible to apply for Enhanced Ventalitory Care Accreditation (whether located in the US or outside of the US).
