QUALITY ASSURANCE/PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
It is our experience that the best way to serve our patients and our customers is to employ multiple, integrated processes for quality improvement to ensure complete quality control for the support and delivery of our services. Many companies approach quality issues as separate from the remainder of their business. Life Ambulance takes a different view, infusing the principles of quality management and quality improvement throughout our organization and into every facet of our local operation—clinical, administrative and operational.
Real-time medic observation by our Field Training Officers, 100% patient chart review, peer review and Medical Director-based education and case reviews are the cornerstones of our program.
