National Clinical Governance Board
As a company with partner sites in 26 states, our leadership understands how the use and uptake of evidence-based guidelines for patient care can vary widely by location. In some cases, two patients could have completely different emergency care experiences, even if they have the same complaints and risk factors. To improve consistency and patient care, USACS created the National Clinical Governance Board (NCGB).
Establishment of evidence-based protocols
The NCGB monitors and responds to clinical governance issues facing USACS clinical sites and enforces established guidelines company-wide.
Assessment of clinical outcomes and patient experience
NCGB guidelines streamline clinical care at all USACS locations to ensure the best patient care. When USACS physicians and APPs follow the established protocols, it is easier to track and measure reduced variability and patient outcomes.
A national impact
By observing, measuring, and aligning our emergency departments, we expect to see a significant improvement, not just at the patient level, but on a national scale.
