Since our inception, we have committed ourselves to improving healthcare quality in every hospital we own. IASIS Healthcare hospitals are accredited by DNV Healthcare, one of the world's leading certification bodies and a global leader in quality and safety, and have received dozens of quality awards and specialty designations in the treatment of pneumonia, stroke, heart failure and many other conditions. Our achievements stem from cutting-edge quality initiatives that are integrated into every level of our organization, from the leadership suite, to hospital management, to our physicians and employees.
In 2007, IASIS took quality to a whole new level, making impressive improvements. We created the Hospital Medical Management and Quality Program (HMMQP), a sophisticated system of identifying and prioritizing goals that go well beyond basic requirements for quality reporting. The cornerstone of our program is a unique framework of collaboration and sharing of best practices among physicians, care providers, employees and leadership.
Our advanced healthcare information and clinical technology initiatives have improved every aspect of our patient care and business processes resulting in:
- Higher quality care outcomes
- Improved patient safety programs and processes
- Comprehensive, real-time access to patient records
- Increased collaboration and improved productivity
- Reduced documentation time for physicians and nurses
- Robust tracking of quality and patient-outcome scores
