An ePOD, quite simply, is an ethical physician-owned distributorship. The AASD has created this designation as a simple and distinguishable mark of excellence. Becoming an ePOD publicly coveys that your distributorship focuses on healthcare savings and operates at the highest levels of transparency, quality assurance, and legal compliance.
With the current ambiguous government regulations surrounding PODs, becoming an ePOD is the single best way to ensure that your distributorship has not overlooked some of the key aspects of compliance. The AASD Standards define what it means to earn the ePOD designation. Abiding by these strict standards will help preserve this beneficial model and prove that your distributorship exists to protect patients, hospitals, and society.
The AASD is the only organization that can grant the ePOD certification, so please make the commitment to proving your distributorship’s merit by becoming a member today!
