Today's managed care environment has challenged health care institutions to deliver quality cost-effective health care.
In the burn community the American Burn Association/American College of Surgeons Burn Center Verification has become an increasingly sought after quality credential.
Essential to successful completion of the verification process is the identification of key components that must be in place before an application is submitted.
These components must be well documented and present in the application and during the site visit.
Adequate burn team preparation is a significant contributor to successful verification.
In addition, the process necessitates self-examination and acquires the benefits of validating current practices and identifying opportunities for improved patient care and efficient operation.
This article details the preparation process undertaken by one burn center before its successful verification.
