Accreditation & Compliance

More than meeting the standards, exceeding the standards should be the norm for a highly reliable hospital, particularly with  pay-for-performance reimbursement. The challenge is that because most hospitals have more than one problem area that needs attention, we must address not only how to show measurable improvement, but how to sustain new processes over time. Whether your emergency department is facing a regulatory or accreditation challenge or is just simply getting by, striving for excellence is your opportunity .

By taking a holistic approach – by looking at your processes, patient experience scores, patient safety and quality performance standards as well as your outcomes – we create the momentum you need to achieve a highly reliable organization.


Donovan+Partners works closely with clinical staff and management to develop business systems and processes that meet  best practice standards and achieve performance metrics.  We’ll leverage our decades of experience and expertise on your behalf to ensure First Time Quality (FTQ) for your hospital.
