Currently accredited/certified but want assurance as to the status of quality and risk systems before the next survey/audit event?
Regardless of size and or complexity of services changes to standards and evidence requirements continue to impact on services. The pre survey/audit review processes includes an in-depth risk assessment as to the current status of clinical and corporate systems and processes as with any actions required to meet current standards. The ideal time for a pre survey review is approximately 6 months out from the survey/audit date. The process is both collaborative and educational and enables open conversations about the risks and continuous improvement opportunities.
Organizations undertaking a risk assessment prior to survey report that executive, management and staff are better prepared and the element of a surprise adverse finding at survey has been significantly reduced with risks being addressed and or controlled. Staff also feedback they have a better understanding of the standards and evidence requirements, the survey process and can speak more confidently to continuous improvement initiatives and outcomes. Evaluation of the methodology continues to show very high levels of satisfaction.
Many clients continue to work with GovernancePlus as part of their quality management system support. For more information on pre survey/certification risk assessments or ongoing quality support management contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandy Thomson 0407008289.
