An audit of the care of diabetics in a group practice. (1/2549)

The diabetics in a general practice of 20,175 patients were identified during one year and 119 were found-a prevalence of 5.9 per thousand.The age and sex distribution, method of treatment, criteria of diabetic control, complications, and present method of care were analysed from the medical records to examine the process of medical care of a chronic disease in general practice.  (+info)

Prevalence of true vein graft aneurysms: implications for aneurysm pathogenesis. (2/2549)

BACKGROUND: Circumstantial evidence suggests that arterial aneurysms have a different cause than atherosclerosis and may form part of a generalized dilating diathesis. The aim of this study was to compare the rates of spontaneous aneurysm formation in vein grafts performed either for popliteal aneurysms or for occlusive disease. The hypothesis was that if arterial aneurysms form a part of a systemic process, then the rates of vein graft aneurysms should be higher for patients with popliteal aneurysms than for patients with lower limb ischemia caused by atherosclerosis. METHODS: Infrainguinal vein grafting procedures performed from 1990 to 1995 were entered into a prospective audit and graft surveillance program. Aneurysmal change was defined as a focal increase in the graft diameter of 1.5 cm or greater, excluding false aneurysms and dilatations after graft angioplasty. RESULTS: During the study period, 221 grafting procedures were performed in 200 patients with occlusive disease and 24 grafting procedures were performed in 21 patients with popliteal aneurysms. Graft surveillance revealed spontaneous aneurysm formation in 10 of the 24 bypass grafts (42%) for popliteal aneurysms but in only 4 of the 221 grafting procedures (2%) that were performed for chronic lower limb ischemia. CONCLUSION: This study provides further evidence that aneurysmal disease is a systemic process, and this finding has clinical implications for the treatment of popliteal aneurysms.  (+info)

The one-stop dyspepsia clinic--an alternative to open-access endoscopy for patients with dyspepsia. (3/2549)

The most sensitive investigative tool for the upper gastrointestinal tract is endoscopy, and many gastroenterologists offer an open-access endoscopy service to general practitioners. However, for patients with dyspepsia, endoscopy is not always the most appropriate initial investigation, and the one-stop dyspepsia clinic allows for different approaches. We have audited, over one year, the management and outcomes of patients attending a one-stop dyspepsia clinic. All patients seen in the clinic were included, and for those not endoscoped the notes were reviewed one year after the end of the study to check for reattendances and diagnoses originally missed. Patients' and general practitioners' views of the service were assessed by questionnaire. 485 patients were seen, of whom 301 (62%) were endoscoped at first attendance. In 66 patients (14%), endoscopy was deemed inappropriate and only one of these returned subsequently for endoscopy. 118 patients (24%) were symptom-free when seen in the clinic and were asked to telephone for an appointment if and when symptoms recurred; half of these returned and were endoscoped. Oesophagitis and duodenal ulcer were significantly more common in this 'telephone endoscopy' group than in those endoscoped straight from the clinic. Overall, 25% of patients referred were not endoscoped. Important additional diagnoses were made from the clinic consultation. General practitioners and patients valued the system, in particular the telephone endoscopy service. 84% of general practitioners said they would prefer the one-stop dyspepsia clinic to open-access endoscopy.  (+info)

Physician management in primary care. (4/2549)

Minimal explicit consensus criteria in the management of patients with four indicator conditions were established by an ad hoc committee of primary care physicians practicing in different locations. These criteria were then applied to the practices of primary care physicians located in a single community by abstracting medical records and obtaining questionnaire data about patients with the indicator conditions. A standardized management score for each physician was used as the dependent variable in stepwise regression analysis with physician/practice and patient/disease characteristics as the candidate independent variables. For all physicians combined, the mean management scores were high, ranging from .78 to .93 for the four conditions. For two of the conditions, care of the normal infant and pregnant woman, the management scores were better for pediatricians and obstetricians respectively than for family physicians. For the other two conditions, adult onset diabetes and congestive heart failure, there were no differences between the management scores of family physicians and internists. Patient/disease characteristics did not contribute significantly to explaining the variation in the standardized management scores.  (+info)

Adjunctive therapy in epilepsy: a cost-effectiveness comparison of two AEDs. (5/2549)

The objective of this study was to compare the relative cost-effectiveness of two AEDs by a prospective clinical audit. Patients starting on the adjunctive therapies lamotrigine and topiramate were recruited from the out-patient epilepsy clinics at Queen Square. Three interview were scheduled: baseline; three months follow-up and six months from baseline. Of the 81 patients recruited, a total of 73 patients completed all three interviews. An intention to treat analysis was performed on the data. Seizure severity and frequency were assessed using the National Hospital Seizure Severity Scale. Side-effects, adverse events and reasons for stopping medication were also recorded. At the third interview, a total of 47/73 (64%) were still on the prescribed adjunctive drug. Outcome was assessed by two methods: the > 50% seizure reduction cited in the literature and a more stringent assessment of patient 'satisfaction' which we defined operationally on clinical criteria. Using this definition, a total of 10/73 (14%) patients were 'satisfied'. The relative costs of starting patients on each of the two AEDs were calculated, both drug costs and the costs of adverse events (the latter were defined as events requiring urgent medical attention). The costs of the two drugs were compared. A number of methodological issues relating to cost comparison are discussed. Outcome and pharmaco-economic studies need to assess more than reduction in number of seizures. They should take into account variables important for quality of life including side-effects and adverse events.  (+info)

Readability of patient information leaflets on antiepileptic drugs in the UK. (6/2549)

The Audit Commission in the UK recommends that patient information leaflets (PILs) should be audited by health professionals using a formal readability test. However, no such study on antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) has been identified in a Medline search. The aim of this study was to audit the readability of PILs prepared for marketed proprietary AEDs in the UK. Twelve PILs were compared with six antiepileptic drug articles from medical journals and six headline articles from UK newspapers. The Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease index were calculated for each PIL and article. The results of the Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease score were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test. PILs were shown to have a statistically significant lower mean reading age than the medical articles and newspapers (P < 0.001). The Gunning Fog index and Flesch Reading Ease score showed that PILs had a mean reading age of 8.8 and mean readability score of 69, respectively. In conclusion, the PILs prepared for proprietary antiepileptic drugs in the UK are suitable for the reading age of the general adult population.  (+info)

Agreeing criteria for audit of the management of induced abortion: an approach by national consensus survey. (7/2549)

OBJECTIVE: To obtain a national consensus view of suggested criteria for good quality care in induced abortion to serve as a basis for standards for audit to assess current clinical practice. DESIGN: Postal, questionnaire survey assessing consensus agreement with criteria identified from a literature review and refined by an invited panel of four gynaecologists and the gynaecology audit project in Scotland (GAPS) committee. SETTING: Scotland. SUBJECTS: All 132 practising consultant gynaecologists. MAIN MEASURES: Overall level of agreement with each of 20 suggested audit criteria. RESULTS: 121 completed questionnaires were received (response rate 92%), of which 119 were returned in time for analysis; 107 came from consultants who practised abortion routinely and were included in the analysis. Nineteen of 20 suggested criteria were validated by an overall balance of agreement. The most strongly supported criterion (agreement score +93) was for ascertaining rhesus status of the woman and prophylaxis after abortion, if indicated. The only criterion to elicit a negative agreement score (-27) was that dilatation and evacuation is the best method of abortion at 12-15 weeks' gestation. The ranked and prioritised criteria resulting from this exercise are being used within a national audit project. CONCLUSIONS: A postal questionnaire survey among interested clinicians resulted in a good response rate and enabled the audit criteria to be validated and ranked more objectively and among more clinicians, than would have been possible by group discussion.  (+info)

Incompleteness and retrieval of case notes in a case note audit of colorectal cancer. (8/2549)

Hospital case notes are a crucial source of data but are subject to two major biases: incompleteness of data and non-retrieval. To assess these biases in relation to colorectal cancer a study was performed of all cases of colorectal cancer listed in the Thames cancer registry in patients resident in one of four districts in South Thames regions with a diagnosis in 1988. Five medical record sites were involved. Retrieval rate for all case notes for districts combined was 80%. In two districts the rates were too high for further investigation; in the other two respectively patient survival and whether treatment was given were positively associated with retrieval. Among the four districts incompleteness of notes ranged from 38% to 62% for staging, 8% to 40% for treatment, and 70% to 25% for diagnostic tests. Information about treatment was missing in 3% to 20%; survival data were omitted in less than 5%. In all districts completeness of case notes was inadequate and in some non-retrieval compounded the problem. Missing data reduce the quality of cancer registry data and potentially undermine interpretation of epidemiological studies and evaluation of care. Further research is warranted into the standards and resourcing of medical records departments and their effects on retrieval and data quality. Structured proformas could be applied across specialties to identify missing items in case notes, to identify areas where standards are required, or to audit notes where standards have already been agreed. A staging protocol to set standards for colorectal cancer has been adopted in one district, and a prospective audit is being established.  (+info)

One of the biggest financial burdens on any medical practice is that of medical audit. Even though it is a necessary evil in the healthcare industry, medical audits setback the financial growth of any practice and initiates change in an otherwise streamlined medical practice. The best way to prepare your chiropractic clinic for a medical audit is by eliminating any chances of audit altogether. Most medical audits originate due to billing failures, repeated claim denials and customer complains. All these issues can be effectively captured in the billing processes and can be easily fixed.. Commonly found chiropractic medical billing errors that lead to an increased audit risk are -. ...

Each year, the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) is required to prepare a risk-based audit plan which sets out the priorities of the internal audit activity, consistent with the organizations goals and priorities. The audit planning process is aligned with the Departments strategic objectives. The input from the Departmental Audit Committee (DAC) and senior management is considered in setting audit priorities.. The starting point for the risk-based planning process is the audit universe which is comprised of NRCans auditable entities. These auditable entities include programs, activities, processes, policies and initiatives which collectively contribute to the achievement of the Departments strategic objectives. The Audit Branch used NRCans Program Activity Architecture (PAA) as well as an inventory of external legislated services to help assess completeness of the audit universe. The NRCan audit universe includes 120 auditable entities.. All programs, projects, activities, processes, policies ...

Ms. Peters also used the presentation to confirm that on-site audits of both covered entities and business associates will be conducted in 2017 after the desk audits are completed. We ...
Why this is important:- There is wide variation across the UK in style, staffing and resources of cardiac rehabilitation programmes. Participation in cardiac rehabilitation after an acute MI significantly reduces mortality and improves quality of life. However, data from the 2012 Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project (MINAP) highlight that only 44% of all patients take part in cardiac rehabilitation after an MI. This falls far short of the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease (2000) target of more than 85% of people discharged from hospital after an acute MI. National audit data also highlight that patients are waiting on average 53 days to start the exercise component (Phase III) after an acute MI. Early cardiac rehabilitation (defined as attendance at a cardiac rehabilitation orientation appointment within 10 days) significantly improves attendance and is also cost-saving through reduced incidence of unplanned cardiac re-admissions ...

This study aimed to examine weather internal audit resources and competencies, internal audit activities i.e. the level of involvement of internal auditors in risk management activities together with the internal audit department level of interaction with audit committees has a significant impact on the level of internal audit effectiveness in the Tanzania commercial banks,keeping in mind that this function is now a mandatory requirement as per the Banking and Financial Institutions Act 2006.The results suggested that internal auditing in Tanzania commercial banks is still embracing traditional approach to internal auditing which is primarily concerned with compliance and monitoring rather than a value added approach to internal auditing. Although the Banking and Financial Institution Act (2006) explicitly requires risk management and corporate governance activities to be carried out by internal auditors in commercial banks, the results of this study deliberate that, there is no evidence to ...
The audit committee has always played a pivotal role in corporate governance, and changes to EU audit legislation in 2016 have seen it assume even greater importance in promoting confidence in the audit.. The key change centers on the audit committees responsibility for the appointment of the external auditor, which was previously a management board decision with some input from the audit committee. For the first time, the committee must have the skills to assess the performance of their current auditor and the quality of the audit, as well as identifying buying criteria for future tenders.. The new regime also requires the audit committee to recommend two audit firms for appointment, expressing a preference for one. This demands a comparative assessment. To do this, the committee will have to assess not only technical competence, but also softer factors such as working relationship, the character of the team and the sector expertise each auditor offers.. Ensuring a competitive tender process ...

You can take the data offline via the Microsoft Office 365 Management API. This API provides a number of ways to accumulate the data from your Office 365 tenant into an offline data store of some form. This can be done by registering a web hook that tells Office 365 what events you want to be notified about (Data is PUSHED to your solution), or you can request the data via a REST call to the API (You PULL the data that you want.). Just recently, I had a client that had built an HR system in Office 365 for storing documents relating to the Employees in their organisation. Now this information is obviously very sensitive and controlling who has access to this data is obviously one of the strengths of SharePoint Online with its highly configurable permission model. However no system is perfect and as ever the admins could give themselves or others permission to access content that they should not perhaps have. This is where auditing comes to the fore as data within the audit cannot be deleted or ...

The whitepaper introduces the concept of Common Cloud Controls. These are mature control areas associated with traditional IT services environments, also equally applicable to cloud-based services. These audit mechanisms are considered mature (e.g. anti-virus, background checks etc.), and there are hundreds of these mature controls that apply to cloud. Organizations can simply use their existing audit vehicles to assess these controls, such as SOC II, ISO 27001, Shared Assessments AUP, etc.. This process should allow an organization to quickly and efficiently evaluate greater than 80% of a cloud providers controls, using current audit programs.. This then leaves those control areas that are not typically covered in ISO 27001 or SOC II (e.g. multi-tenancy, containerization, etc.). The whitepaper refers to these as Delta Cloud Controls and provides dozens of practical examples of how to effectively incorporate these control areas into an organizations cloud strategy and audit program..

Improving treatment adherence is at the heart of clinical psychiatry. It requires building a therapeutic relationship with patients, understanding their needs and tailoring treatment accordingly. Monitoring treatment adherence is a continuous process during which the need to continue medication in the long term is regularly stressed. We need to identify the barriers and help patients and carers to overcome these. This can only be achieved if the treatment is regularly monitored for its efficacy, side-effect burden and acceptability to patients.. This audit presents a rather disappointing picture of the conversation about treatment adherence, which is not common in clinical encounters. Such discussions took place in just half of the consultations, whereas questions about possible side-effects and response to medication were raised even less frequently. The first variable improved to about 60% after regular reminders and inclusion of this topic in the junior doctor induction, but this result was ...
We read Dr Lim and Dr Woodheads update on the British Thoracic Society (BTS) 2009/2010 community acquired pneumonia (CAP) audit with interest and noted the high inpatient mortality rate of 18.3%.1 As a contributing site, we received a useful summary of our data in comparison with the national data and local mortality rates for severe CAP (CURB65 3-5) were 21.4% versus 42.6% nationally. This provoked an examination of local severe CAP admissions between December 2009 and May 2011 (n=169) that found 25% mortality with age, gender and comorbidity distributions similar to national audit data. We suspect variations in case definitions may be important in understanding differences between local and national data.. The Thorax report focuses on adherence to local antibiotic guidelines. Nationally, 55.5% of patients received antibiotics in line with local prescribing policies (64% in severe CAP), but there was no association between adherence and mortality.1 From our 18-month severe CAP data, over 89% ...

Conducting a self-review based on the audit protocols can help BAs prepare for desk audits; it can also help BAs and CEs get ready for the more exhaustive on-site audits. And as OCR steps up investigations of breaches large and small-while cyberthreats continue to mount-the audit protocols offer a blueprint that can help an organization identify and address risks. Following protocols The phase two audit protocols were built on the phase one protocols and updated to include changes made by the 2013 HIPAA omnibus final rule. (For more information on the phase two audit protocols, see the July issue of BOH.) The updates also include information specifically for BAs. But the protocols are useful beyond simply checking boxes for audited organizations: Any CE or BA can use them to evaluate compliance.

An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European 0-9. The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ASCII characters (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of Unicode characters that provides the basis for IDNs. The hostname rule requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen -. The Unicode form of an IDN therefore ...

Topeka Gov. Kathleen Sebelius 2003 order to sell state vehicles saved more money than previously reported, but the reduction in fleet has led to some problems, according to a new audit.. Sebelius administration officials said the report released last week justified their budget-cutting move.. We believed we had too many cars, said Duane Goossen, Sebelius budget director and administration secretary.. Sebelius, a Democrat, has used the sale of state cars as an example of how she reduced government waste. But Republicans, who hold significant majorities in the Legislature, have long claimed Sebelius overstated the savings.. I dont think we saved any money, state Sen. Les Donovan, R-Wichita, said.. The new report by the Legislative Division of Post Audit is the second audit into the state vehicle sales by Sebelius.. In 2003, Sebelius declared a two-year moratorium on the purchase of new state vehicles, ordered underused vehicles sold and eliminated the Central Motor Pool.. The basic fleet ...

This webinar will discuss current CBP audit methods and what importers may expect.. ...
Audit and feedback had an influence on antimicrobial prescription patterns in the ICU with a favorable impact on the emergence of resistance.
It is evident that the majority of mainstream software programs are shit, and while audits and the creators of a specific software program can tell one much about the quality of said software, audits can be fabricated and the user should look at the program itself instead of looking at who made it and where it came from. If more individuals studied computer engineering/science and programming and were able to audit programs, we would become stronger, and one could rest assured that their computer was tested to perfection. I have begun to notice that a major problem with auditing code is the fact that some software programs are massive and require teams to finish in a practical amount of time (Or one individual with ultimate dedication...), and this can be fixed by advocating for single purpose programs with lean code and minimal features with room for the user to build and add to it. Computers are amazing machines, and every individual with a laptop and a great mind can achieve amazing feats! ...

Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. The top priority of secondary prevention is to control modifiable risk factors. However, current cardiovascular risk factor management remains inadequate and monitoring programs, like clinical audits, are lacking. Objectives: i| to summarize the importance of clinical audits in daily practice; ii| to describe CVD risk factor recording and management in routine practice; iii| to assess potential determinants within and between different geographic regions; and iv| to summarize the use of cardiovascular medication in China. Results: The consistency and representativeness of existing clinical audits were still limited. SURF CHD (SUrvey of Risk Factors Coronary Heart Disease) was a straightforward and targeted clinical audit to simplify the recording and monitoring of routine CVD risk factors. SURF recruited 10,186 CHD patients in 11 countries among three different regions (Europe, Asia, and the Middle East). Recording

INTRODUCTION: Perinatal mortality rate is a sensitive indicator of quality of care provided to women in pregnancy, at and after child birth and to the newborns in the first week of life. Regular perinatal audit would help in identifying all the factors that play a role in causing perinatal deaths and thus help in appropriate interventions to reduce avoidable perinatal deaths.. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This study was carried out to determine perinatal mortality rate (PMR) and the factors responsible for perinatal deaths at KMCTH in the two year period from November 2003 to October 2005 (Kartik 2060 B.S. to Ashoj 2062).. METHODOLOGY: This is a prospective study of all the still births and early neonatal deaths in KMCTH during the two year period from November 2003 to October 2005. Details of each perinatal death were filled in the standard perinatal death audit forms of the Department of Pediatrics, KMCTH. Perinatal deaths were analyzed according to maternal characteristics like maternal age, parity, ...

In a statement, EY said: Audit quality is an ongoing focus and priority to EY, however we recognise that we fell short of our professional standards on three matters in relation to the audit of Tech Data Limited (formerly Computer 2000 Distribution Limited) for the financial year ending 31 January 2012.. EY is committed to performing high quality audits and has established a long-term audit quality programme in the UK and a dedicated Audit Quality Board, which are aligned to the steps we have taken globally. We also continue to invest in new technology, data analytics software and training for our people. The results of the latest inspection report from the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) recognises the significant level of investment EY has made in audit quality, particularly over the last three years, and demonstrate our continued progress..

Background. Data on potential variations in delivery of appropriate stroke care over time are scarce. We investigated temporal changes in the quality of acute hospital stroke care across five national audits in Europe over a period of six years. Methods. Data were derived from national stroke audits in Germany, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, and England/Wales/Northern Ireland participating within the European Implementation Score (EIS) collaboration. Temporal changes in predefined quality indicators with comparable information between the audits were investigated. Multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed to estimate adherence to quality indicators over time. Results. Between 2004 and 2009, individual data from 542,112 patients treated in 538 centers participating continuously over the study period were included. In most audits, the proportions of patients who were treated on a SU, were screened for dysphagia, and received thrombolytic treatment increased over time and ranged from ...
Results A total of 54 patients were included in the first audit cycle. Of these, 11 (20.4%) were prescribed oral metronidazole and 43 (79.6%) were prescribed intravenous metronidazole. In the majority of cases (35/43, 81.4%), intravenous metronidazole was prescribed in the absence of clear contraindications to the oral preparation. Of the 61 patients included in the reaudit cycle, 23 (37.7%) were prescribed oral metronidazole and 38 (62.3%) were prescribed intravenous metronidazole. The proportion of patients prescribed intravenous metronidazole despite being suitable for oral preparation decreased from 81.4% in the first cycle to 34.2% (13/38) in the reaudit cycle (risk ratio 0.42, 95% CI: 0.26 to 0.67, p,0.0001). Prescribing oral metronidazole when suitable saved up to £10.53/day per patient. ...

Clinical audit-the systematic assessment and improvement of the quality of care-is now an essential requirement of all clinicians by the government. Clinical audit of the process of myocardial infarction has been performed both in this country and elsewhere for several years,1-3 although the majority of work is performed within individual hospitals rather than in collaboration with colleagues in other hospitals. It has tended to concentrate on the use of thrombolytic treatment. Recent evidence from 15 hospitals examined between 1993 and 1997 showed only patchy improvement in delays from a call for help to treatment. Some hospitals where there were long delays before thrombolytic treatment showed no improvement over that time.4 It was clear from these data that in some hospitals either the incentive or the facilities to improve performance, at least in this area, was lacking.. The National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease,5 has been compiled with advice from cardiologists and others ...

Detering R, de Neree Tot Babberich MPM, Bos ACRK, Dekker JWT, Wouters MWJM, Bemelman WA, Beets-Tan RGH, Marijnen CAM, Hompes R, Tanis PJ; Dutch ColoRectal Audit Group.. INTRODUCTION. The revised Dutch colorectal cancer guideline (2014), led to an overall decrease in preoperative radiotherapy (RT) use. This study evaluates hospital variation in RT use for resectable rectal cancer and the influence of guideline revision, including the nationwide impact of changing RT application on short term outcomes.. METHODS. Data of surgically resected rectal cancer patients registered in the Dutch ColoRectal Audit were extracted between 2011 and 2017. Patients were divided into groups based on time of guideline revision (,2014 and ≥ 2014). Primary outcome was guideline adherence at hospital level regarding RT application, stratified for three stage groups. Secondary outcomes included positive circumferential resection (CRM+) and 30-day complicated postoperative course.. RESULTS. The groups consisted of 7364 ...

Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) may be associated with high rates of inappropriate transfusion with some studies indicating rates of up to 50 per cent non-compliance with established guidelines. The current British Committee for Standards in Haematology (BCSH) guidelines on the use of FFP aim to reinforce the message regarding avoidance of its inappropriate use. An audit of FFP use in 2007 in the South Central region, revealed that FFP was used for warfarin reversal in 26 per cent of the cases audited. FFP weight related dosage was poorly implemented with weight being recorded in only 32 per cent of cases. The 2009 National Comparative Audit (NCA) programme indicated that FFP continued to be used for warfarin reversal and, was frequently given where there was no evidence of actual bleeding. An audit of FFP use in the South West in one large hospital, found that following a period of intensive educational measures, appropriate use of FFP improved dramatically, particularly with respect to use for ...

This paper analyses the most significant developments in the audit methodology since 1990 that are related to the transition from the audit methodology based on the risk of financial statements to the methodology based on the performance process risk. Such developments in the audit methodology are presented as a result of a new approach towards risk assessment or an outcome of the new paradigm. On the other hand, the risk factors related to the performance assessment are examined and analysed as an inherent part of a performance audit. The article also deals with the general risk factors of economy, efficiency and effectiveness, introduces the performance audit efficiency model that identifies significant areas to be audited and possible research aspects ...

Currently, quality of healthcare is a hot topic, and this is especially true for cancer care. Patients try to seek the best care available. As a result, several ranking lists can be found on the Internet and in the popular press worldwide. Unfortunately, many of those lists do not meet the requirements needed for a fair comparison of healthcare providers and can therefore give misleading results. Nevertheless, the search for quality is plausible because there seem to be substantial differences in quality of care between countries, hospitals and doctors.1 In addition to patients, politicians, insurance companies and medical professionals also strive for a higher quality of care, all with their own reasons and strategies. In many countries, governments have tightened their existing regulations and created new ones when trying to improve quality of care in a top-down manner. Obviously, medical professionals also put great effort into improving their quality of work, but this happens in a ...

Mr. Chairman - In my opinion, there is no more important issue confronting the Board than ensuring the independence, objectivity and professional skepticism of auditors as they conduct their audits.. Both our own PCAOB inspection reports and those of many of our international counterparts recognize that more must be done in this area.. Whether the answer is mandatory rotation, re-tendering, greater transparency of audit tenure, enhanced independent audit committees, or any of the other recommendations that resulted from our first roundtable discussion - or those that may be offered today - I believe that all alternatives must be thoroughly considered to further shareholder trust in the quality of the audit.. I believe that the public policy making process is best served by hearing from all interested parties in an open, deliberative process. While some of the recommendations we have heard so far are within the SECs jurisdiction - not ours - I think the hearing record we are creating may serve ...
