External Quality Assessments (EQA) Program

Additionally, as a benefit to AHIA members and other affiliated organizations’ members, AHIA is developing an online repository of members who are interested in volunteering to lead or participate in external assessments of internal audit departments.

The AHIA has long been involved in helping organizations ensure quality in their audit functions. To assist our members in meeting the requirement for external assessments, AHIA worked closely with the Health Plan Alliance (HPA) to develop an online directory of volunteer members who are interested in serving as an independent reviewer or a member of an external assessment team.  This list is maintained and provided as a member service.
