10 RAMIT principles of QUALITY
assurance in HEALTHCARE
The quality assessment is in function of the defined objectives.
A quality assessment in healthcare is always performed as part of a bigger strategie or roadmap. Quality improvement, interoperability or the implementation of new care concepts are potential reasons for setting up a quality test.
The quality assessment is organised within a technical or medical scope.
The scope will define the different topics on which the quality assessment will focus. Depending on the topic, this will be a medical (e.g. care concept) or technical (e.g. interoperability) approach.
The quality assessment checks the conformity against a standardized scheme.
The high-level approach of each assessment is recorded in a standardized scheme. This scheme describes all the different phases within the assessment process.
The quality assessment is guided by a set of validated criteria.
A validated set of fine grained criteria is the backbone of the quality assessment. This criteria set can be delivered either by the client or RAMIT. Thanks to our network of international experts, in various domains, reviewing or drawing up a criteria set is part of our core business.
The quality assessment criteria are documented.
In order to implement a criteria set in a uniform way, a clear documentation is mandatory. The purpose of the documentation is to clarify on interpretation and implementation for each criterion.
The quality assessment is performed based on a standardized scenario.
For every quality assessment an unique and standardized scenario will be drawn up. Each scenario is constructed and documented in such a way that it can be applied in an unambiguous way
The quality assessment is executed by independent peer auditors.
Our pool of international auditors are recruited and qualified in different topics of our ecosystem. Thanks to training and evaluation, we continuously push the knowledge and skills of our auditors to the highest level.
The quality assessment’s outcome is a report.
The outcome of a quality assessment performed by RAMIT is always a report, never a certificate or quality label. The report will be handed over to the client who will use it during decision making.
The legitimacy of the quality assessment outcome is time-restricted.
A continuously monitoring system should be in place in order to keep overall quality on the highest level. Therefore quality assessment should be repeatable in time in orde to pursue the highest possible quality.
The quality assessment is being performed by a neutral notified audit body.
Neutrality and independency are RAMIT’s main values. As a not-for-profit organization, we care for our public responsibility and aim to push healthcare to a higher level.
