Surgical Review Corporation’s (SRC) accreditation programs provide a full and complete certification process

…a transformative process with amazing support to improve safety and efficacy, decrease complications, improve outcomes and patients satisfaction, it really improves your own clinical pathways along with quality and safety processes for your patients. And it also provide tools to really follow up and be part of the big data outcomes with bariatric surgery.

-Bariatric Nurse, Saudi Arabia

“Dr. Hutcher provided us with such a wealth of knowledge regarding the history and progression of bariatric surgery.

…His experiences were so interesting, but more importantly highlighted the importance of ethical entrepreneurship and excellence of care that is imperative to growing and maintaining a successful program. His suggestions were greatly appreciated and will help us to improve the patient experience and long term outcomes.”

“It has been an amazing experience with SRC from our very first phone call

…This year we decided to become an accredited Center of Excellence in Robotics, in addition to Bariatrics. For this reason we moved our accreditation from the MSAQIP to SRC so we could keep both practices in one organization. We had a lot of questions and were always greeted with someone who seemed happy to help us in any way they could. We were never made to feel like we were asking a “stupid question”. They guided us every step of the way, and made it clear that they wanted us to succeed. Our Inspector, Teresa Leath along with Teri Burd and Victoria Giambattista were the ones who came to our facility for the inspection. They were professional and made us feel at ease from the very beginning. They provided us with great ideas for how we can make our program even better, while remaining positive throughout the entire two day inspection. They were thorough with both the documentation review and facility tour which included interviews with staff members in all different departments. We look forward to our long standing relationship with SRC, and know we can look to them for any guidance we may need moving forward.”

“After our initial designation, we saw an immediate interest from patients and other staff.

…The COEMIG designation prompted non-COEMIG surgeons to be proctored and significantly reduced the number of open hysterectomies and referrals to outside hospitals. It reduced our open hysterectomy rate to less than 2% while reducing complications and allowed for development of ERAS/same day hysterectomy implementation. The process was very detailed. With excellent organization by our team, the process ran very smoothly. It gave credence to members of our staff to our minimally invasive gynecology approach to taking care of patients.”

“Teresa [SRC’s site inspector] was wonderful to work with

…Her support team, including Vicki Poor [SRC’s program support manager], were extremely helpful during the preparation process. They were quick to respond to questions and easy to talk to. It was obvious Teresa and her team were here to support us and wanted us to succeed. Teresa’s approach during the inspection was from a place of education and support, not critical, but encouraging. She was able to provide us with insight on how to improve our program and continue pushing forward towards the goal of excellent patient care. During our inspection, Teresa encouraged us to prepare for a Robotic certification. She even took the time to create an excel spread sheet highlighting parts of the COERS certification we have already met and what gaps we have to prepare for. It was great to have the instant feedback at the summation meeting at the end of the day. Teresa reviewed all the required elements and noted what we had achieved. The turnaround time was only a couple days and we received notification of our official certification. As a bonus, just a few days later we were already on the SRC website newsfeed! Overall great experience. We look forward to working with Teresa and her SRC team again.”

“We continue to grow and develop our minimally invasive gynecologic surgery department

…With the addition of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) we are working closely with our colleagues in colorectal surgery and general surgery to reduce variation and increase consistency throughout the perioperative process. We intentionally do not select out specific surgeons as certified or not, and using this as a unifying platform for the entire campus. We have developed a pelvic health clinic for gynecologists as well as primary care providers can get consultation for consideration of advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgical interventions.”

“The process of COEMIG certification was relatively easy

…All surgeons are working hard to improve quality and record keeping to meet our payor standards, and the COEMIG database is a great way to meet some of those goals.  The changes in the database have made it more “user friendly” since our initial certification. We have made improvements and changes based on our SRC review that have helped to streamline care and improve our service line. The process of the review further strengthened our minimally invasive team by helping to re-align our goals and strategies for optimizing gynecologic services and all-around women’s’ health perioperative care”.

-Master Surgeon in MIG, Kentucky

“Our ability to advance healthcare relies on intentional effort

…and structure surrounding service line strategies. Our hospital’s pursuit of a center of excellence with SRC has been an exceptional experience. From the accreditation process to the onsite input and validation we received, all aspects were extremely positive. The collaborative approach and genuine desire to advance healthcare in our community was evident. Thank you to the team at SRC for an elite experience.”
