Ocean Reef Dental is privileged to be a part of a new standard of accredited practices where we ensure we always meet QIP (Quality Innovation Performance) quality standards and patient safety and care.
What is QIP accreditation?
With more than twenty years’ experience in accreditation, QIP (a not-for-profit health promotion charity) is dedicated to training staff and building service offerings that make a clear difference to the patient’s experience and safety. Furthermore, QIP is concerned with adding value while enabling a positive environment for both staff and patients.
The accreditation of Ocean Reef Dental Surgery, among other private dental practices, is based on a clear set of National Safety and Quality Health Services (NSQHS) standards that are met in the everyday practice culture and processes and is perpetually concerned with patient safety. These safety standards comply with regulatory requirements passed down by both the Federal and state Governments. One of the main requirements forces practices to demonstrate a set of clear and evidence–based patient benefits when patients are visiting an accredited practice.
QIP accreditation aims to increase or build a patient’s assurance and trust as accreditation provides the recognition that an organisation is:
- Devoted to quality care and safety.
- Provides consumers with confidence.
- Decreases occupational risks.
- Builds a more efficient organisation.
- Provides patients with quality performance.
