The Clinical Audit Department was set up in 1991 as part of SNEC’s focus on quality assurance, commitment to the highest standards of clinical governance and the delivery of safe and high-quality ophthalmic care.
Clinical audit was introduced by SNEC’s founding Medical Director, the late
Professor Arthur Lim. It was his belief that, “a patient’s eye is not for experimentation”. He placed high importance on a patient’s well-being and implemented several quality assurance initiatives to develop a culture of excellence at SNEC.
The clinical audit process aims to:
review and evaluate the process and outcomes of patient care and clinical performance against prescribed targets and standards
ensure that the highest standard of eye care is provided to all patients
provide data to SNEC’s doctors for training, education, research, presentations and publications
ensure regular compilation and reporting of statistics for the Quality Assurance Committee
All major surgeries performed at SNEC are video-recorded for training and education, and the outcomes are audited.
Clinical subspecialties and audit data:
Corneal & External Eye Disease
General Cataract & Comprehensive Ophthalmology
Ocular Inflammation & Immunology
Paediatric Ophthalmology & Adult Strabismus
