CLINICAL OUTCOME RESULTS
Singapore National Eye Centre is committed to the highest standards of clinical governance and ensuring the delivery of safe and high quality ophthalmic care.
The Clinical Audit Department with 6 full time staff supports the Head, Clinical Quality, Dr Edmund Wong who is responsible for the coordination of the clinical governance activities in SNEC.
The aim of the Clinical Audit Department is to ensure that the highest standard of eye care is given to all our patients. The Clinical Audit Department has a systematic procedure to review and evaluate the process and outcome of patient care and clinical performance against prescribed targets and standards. In addition, the surgical procedures are all recorded for review and audit and also for training and education.
The Clinical Audit Department audits over 10,000 surgical procedures annually. It currently tracks over 30 indicators in the following subspecialties: Cataract Surgery, Vitreo-Retinal Surgery, Refractive Surgery (LASIK), Corneal Surgery, Glaucoma Surgery, Paediatric Ophthalmology Surgery and Oculoplastic Surgery.
The audit results as well as trend analysis are presented to all clinical, nursing and key administrative staff annually. This is part of the clinician’s training and education for improved patient care and it also serves to reinforce to all the leadership’s emphasis on clinical quality and patient safety.
With such strong support from top management, Quality Improvement and Quality Assurance is built into the culture of SNEC and is well accepted and practiced by everyone.
The public should note that collecting clinical outcome data is challenging. Statistics from different institutions should also be comparable. Institutions should also align clinical outcome measures so that the collection and presentation of outcome data is consistent comparable and reliable.
