A pre and post onsite audit meeting is held via teleconference with the key program staff members. The pre-audit meeting provides details and sets expectations for the onsite assessment. Information about the onsite audit will be provided and the agenda will be reviewed. The post audit review, which takes places about one to two weeks after the onsite audit, is a detailed report out of the assessment findings with specific recommendations to optimize the organization's readiness for the "official" site inspection.
The audit assesses both the hospital and bariatric practice(s) to determine the program's compliance with the stated MBSAQIP standards:
Standard 1: Case Volume, Patient Selection, and Approved Procedures by Designation Level
Standard 2: Commitment to Quality Care
Standard 3: Appropriate Equipment and Instruments
Standard 4: Critical Care Support
Standard 5: Continuum of Care
Standard 6: Data Collection
Standard 7: Continuous Quality Improvement Process
