Virtual Renewal Inspections

SRC now offers renewing designees a virtual inspection alternative in lieu of the traditional onsite inspection for those that qualify.

Virtual inspections consist of telephonic staff interviews, updating requirement compliance documents and a medical chart review. Inspection documentation is mailed or emailed to SRC using a secure platform.

The virtual inspection process offers renewing designees numerous benefits, including an expedited review and a significant savings of onsite inspection-related fees and expenses. Onsite renewal inspections are still available for those preferring this method of evaluation.

New Database Features

The benefits of being an SRC Outcomes Database user just got better.

The database now has the ability to handle mass data imports from EMRs and has a site inspection resource tool to expedite the site inspection preparation process.

These two new features, along with numerous other quality improvement benefits, are what led SRC’s Outcomes Database to become the largest multispecialty database in the world.

New Multi-Specialty Accreditation

Accreditation organizations have historically offered a one-size-fits all model for hospitals and physicians. From 13 years of experience, SRC knows that one size does not fit all when it comes to program improvement, data collection and accreditation.

SRC was the first organization to offer two accreditation options – Center of Excellence accreditation achieved by a hospital plus their co-applicant surgeon(s) and Surgeon of Excellence accreditation achieved by an individual surgeon, without a co-applicant hospital.

To expand our custom approach to accreditation, address a changing healthcare environment and improve efficiencies across service lines, SRC now offers multi-specialty accreditation programs. These programs are designed to improve minimally invasive surgery departments and effectively spotlight highly-skilled surgeons across a broad spectrum of surgical specialties.

Accreditation is not one size fits all. Click here to learn more about SRC’s multi-specialty and single-specialty accreditation programs.

Minimally Invasive Surgery Accreditation

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) covers a broad range of specialties and procedures. SRC believes that surgeons and hospitals that excel in MIS procedures should be recognized for their dedication to optimal patient care.

SRC now offers two accreditation options for MIS providers – a facility-based accreditation (COEMIS) as well as a surgeon-only accreditation (SOEMIS). Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery (COEMIS) accreditation is comprised of a hospital or surgery center plus at least one co-applicant surgeon. MIS surgeons from multiple service lines are encouraged to apply with their facility. Surgeon of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery (SOEMIS) accreditation is for surgeons who prefer to apply without a hospital co-applicant or who want a transferrable accreditation because they practice at multiple hospitals.

New Programs and Designees

Congratulations to the 134 new designees who recently achieved SRC Accreditation.

In addition to this prestigious group, 62 surgeons and hospitals renewed their accreditation.

SRC has over 720 hospitals, surgeons and care specialist designees worldwide. These designees make up SRC’s global network of providers committed to excellent care, safety and optimal patient outcomes.

AAGL COEMIG Seal_Dark“Achieving the COEMIG designation validates our dedication to caring for our patients with advanced practices, and it reinforces our role as a national and international leader in innovative healthcare for women. The designation process compelled us to formalize our clinical pathways and provide ongoing surgeon and staff education, which continues to enhance our drive toward optimal clinical outcomes. Our surgeons who are not yet designated recognize the value and are actively pursuing it. Through the COEMIG program, we are leading minimally invasive gynecological surgery at our hospital to new levels of excellence.”
