National Clinical Governance Board
As a company made up of founding partner groups from around the country, our leaders understand that there is often wide variability in the use and uptake of evidence-based guidelines for patient care. In some cases, two patients could have completely different emergency care experiences, even if they have the same complaints and risk factors.
That's why we've created the National Clinical Governance Board (NCGB).
Establishment of evidence-based protocols
The NCGB is responsible for monitoring and responding to clinical governance issues facing USACS clinical sites, and enforcing the established guidelines company-wide.
Assessment of clinical outcomes and patient experience
The goal is to streamline clinical care at all USACS locations to ensure the best patient care. When USACS providers 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 as well.
