What is QIP Accreditation?
“Achieving accreditation demonstrates a commitment to the provision of excellent dental care and continuous quality improvement with the practice” – Quality Innovation Performance (QIP)
Practice accreditation is independent recognition that a practice has met the requirements of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
These standards reflect regulatory requirements passed down by both Federal and State Governments and are evidence based with a clear focus on safety, quality and continuous improvement of protocols and implementation of best practice for a patient’s continued care.
Accreditation is not compulsory for dental practices but may help you decide which dental practice to choose.
What Accreditation Means for You?
An accredited practice means that you can be assured that everyone associated with Flagstaff Hill Dental Care adheres to quality and safety performance standards that are constantly re-evaluated and improved upon.
Flagstaff Hill Dental Care has implemented a culture of quality care and patient safety which has met the requirements of QIP based on a defined criteria and set of standards.
In other words, accreditation means that your dentist’s practice has been thoroughly evaluated from a quality and safety standpoint.
Accreditation is also not just a one-time application. It is something that must be maintained continuously, so when you see the QIP symbol, you know that a dentist is being constantly monitored to ensure the quality of care remains high.
