About Surgical Review Corporation

SRC Cycle of Excellence

Established in 2003, SRC is an internationally recognized healthcare leader committed to advancing the safety, efficacy and efficiency of surgical care worldwide.

To achieve its aims, SRC developed a proven methodology known as “Cycle of Excellence™”, involving four interdependent initiatives:

  • Consulting
  • Accreditation
  • Education
  • Data

Collectively, these four elements offer immeasurable quality improvements for surgeons, facilities and patients across a multitude of surgical specialties.

Consulting

Preparing For and Guiding Toward Excellence

Centers and surgeons on the road to excellence often need assistance in meeting program requirements, developing a culture of excellence and building their surgical practice. Cycle of Excellence begins with consulting services designed specifically for individual participant needs.

Accreditation

The Global Standard for Quality Surgical Care

SRC develops and administers best-in-class excellence programs for surgeons, hospitals and freestanding outpatient facilities throughout the world. These programs are focused on improving the safety and quality of patient care, and lowering the overall costs associated with successful treatment. Data from program participants is being used to determine which treatments have the best outcomes. This information enables clinicians, patients, payors and policymakers to make informed decisions that will improve healthcare at an individual level and for each specialty’s patient population as a whole.

Data

Information is Power

Ongoing data collection is integral to the success of the Cycle of Excellence. That’s why SRC developed its proprietary, longitudinal, multi-specialty outcomes databases to help ensure ongoing compliance with the programs it administers. Data is available to guide program standards and support outcomes-based medicine to safeguard each specialty’s future.

Education

Sustaining a Culture of Excellence

Excellence is not simply an achievement; it is a culture that must be sustained. Even the best care providers can improve through training and education. Using its 12-year experience and data collected from hundreds of site inspections around the world, SRC is in a unique position to share these resources with those who wish to improve beyond their accreditation. Surgeons, hospitals and allied health personnel will benefit most from SRC’s Education programs that are tailored for individual needs.
