A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues. (1/462)

PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'.  (+info)

What health plans should know about clinical practice guidelines--round-table discussion. (2/462)

Quality is the watchword for health plans that wish to survive to see the new century, and accreditation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance is becoming quality's indispensable stamp. Practice guidelines are an imperative for that accreditation. Here's what seven managed care leaders had to say about guidelines in a recent round-table discussion.  (+info)

Putting continuous quality improvement into accreditation: improving approaches to quality assessment. (3/462)

The accreditation systems of the United States, Canada, and Australia have been restructured to reflect the adoption by health services of the industrial model of continuous quality improvement. The industrial model of quality makes assumptions about management structures and the relation of process to outcome which are not readily transferable to the assessment of quality in health care. The accreditation systems have therefore had to adapt the principles of continuous quality improvement to reflect the complex nature of health service organisations and the often untested assumptions about the relation between process and outcome.  (+info)

An approach to an index of hospital performance. (4/462)

The arrangements for programme administration and design, resident assessment and appraisal, training of trainers in educational methods, and the accreditation of training programmes are discussed. The fast-evolving UK postgraduate education scene can learn some useful lessons from the US system.  (+info)

Undergraduate and postgraduate orthodontics in Australia. (6/462)

Undergraduate orthodontic education in Australian university dental schools reflects a strong British influence. The Australian Dental Council is now responsible for undergraduate course accreditation and the development of a more distinctly Australian model might be expected, although not in isolation from the traditional British and American influences. Postgraduate specialty training has been more directly influenced by the North American dental schools, and specialist registers in the states and territories reflect that influence. The Australian Dental Council will commence accreditation of postgraduate specialty courses in 1999.  (+info)

A review of trauma systems using the Calgary model. (7/462)

Surgeons caring for severely injured patients have witnessed tremendous change over the past 2 decades with the rapid evolution of trauma systems. This paper describes the evolution of trauma systems in Canada, using the one in Calgary as a model. Canadian system guidelines were produced by the Trauma Association of Canada in 1993. Participation in Canadian accreditation is accelerating as increasingly more centres across the country undergo external review each year. Reporting of trauma outcomes, including standardized mortality and a variety of performance measures, is becoming the norm. Injury is being treated as a disease with comprehensive control strategies aimed at reducing death and disability rates through prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.  (+info)

Many of the themes outlined are described in detail in other papers that have been prepared specifically for this issue of The International Journal for Quality in Health Care. Although the emphasis of this project and of this issue of the Journal is on Europe, the conclusions are more widely relevant.  (+info)

The purpose of this study is to establish teaching hospital accreditation standards anew with the hope that Taiwans teaching hospitals can live up to the expectations of our society and ensure quality teaching. The development process lasted two years, 2005-2006, and was separated into three stages. The first stage centered on leadership meetings and consensus building, the second on drafting the new standards with expert focus groups, and the third on a pilot study and subsequent revision. Our new teaching hospital accreditation standards have six categories and 95 standards as follows: educational resources (20 items), teaching and training plans and outcomes (42 items), research and results (9 items), development of clinical faculty and continuing education (8 items), academic exchanges and community education (8 items), and administration (8 items). The new standards have proven feasible and posed reasonable challenges in the pilot study. We hope the new standards will strengthen teaching and

The reach of accreditation is extensive and the investments in it in many sectors are considerable. Industries such as school education, [2] universities, [3, 4] software manufacture, [5] the seafood sector, [6] and ambulance services [7] have embraced accreditation, standard setting, and surveying processes. Accreditation has been applied to laboratories, [8] management systems, [9] products,[10] medical curricula, [11] and staff competencies [12]. Essentially, the core concerns addressed by the processes of accreditation are whether organizations satisfy pre-designated standards, are regularly examined and continuously improved, and the extent to which customer satisfaction is met or enhanced [13]. However, we lack convincing evidence of the long-term effects and organizational impact of accreditation processes.. The health sector, as an early adopter of accreditation, has promoted its use since 1951 (the Joint Commission in the United States of America), and in Australia since 1973. ...
In this systematic review, we examined 20 studies involving accreditation and certification aimed at improving patient and organizational outcomes. Because few studies specifically addressed the correlation between accreditation and certification of hospitals and patient outcomes, we could not reach firm conclusions regarding effective strategies in this area.. This is no surprise as accreditation is anticipated as a prototypical example of a complex intervention. Within our classification of interventions, the manner in which the studies carried out specific interventions varied widely. There is complexity in the intervention components as well as in the theoretical background of the intervention, the implementation context, and the targeted outcomes [37]. The literature is dominated by descriptive studies attributing changes in the organization to the accreditation process. The research has ranged from identifying the change in compliance to standards, patient satisfaction, performance ...

According to Ed Boyd, executive director of Oregon Accreditation Alliance (and chief of police, retired), Accreditation means that an agency, their operations, management, policies and procedures meet the best practices the industry has to offer. The accreditation process in general is a progressive and contemporary way of helping law enforcement agencies evaluate and improve their overall performance and provides formal and professional recognition that an organization meets or exceeds best practice expectations of service and quality in the profession. To be accredited, an agency must meet 102 professional standards comprised of over 400 separate requirements contained within those standards. It also, in my opinion, takes courage for an organization to take on the rigorous accreditation process. Anytime the chief executive officer of an organization invites an outside third party into their department to review and inspect everything associated with their operations and render an opinion as ...

American College of Radiology (ACR) started the radiation oncology accreditation program in 1986 as a logical extension of the patterns of care study (PCS) and collected data from institutions that participated on the patterns of patient care among institutions. It published technical standard for various components of radiation oncology practices and evaluated the performance of centers based on practice guidelines. American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) joined ACR and formed an alliance to provide radiation oncology practice accreditation (ROPA) in 2008. ROPA provides an independent evaluation of radiation oncology center performance for a nominal fee and provides guidelines. Some states have now mandated that ROPA should be prerequisite for reimbursement as it provides a measure of quality of patient care. Accreditation process has 2 components, technical and clinical. In this talk technical components will be discussed followed by clinical component by a clinician. The technical ...

... is a process by which an authoritative body gives formal recognition of technical competence for specific tests/ measurements, based on third party assessment and following international standard.
