Inova is Committed to the Highest-Quality Surgical Care
Inova was the first health system chosen in the U.S. to participate in the American College of Surgeons Quality Verification Program (ACS QVP).
ACS Quality Programs were built for patients to ensure surgeons and care teams provide the highest quality surgical care at hospitals across the country. These programs use the best data, expert input, and tested processes to help surgical care teams deliver the highest quality care. They provide hundreds of detailed standards that consider every aspect of surgical care and help involve patients in the decision-making process across the entire continuum of care.
ACS Quality Programs verify that hospitals are meeting clinical standards developed by the world’s leading experts. That means patients and their families know the care they are receiving at an ACS-verified or accredited hospital is the highest quality. Inova is an ACS Surgical Quality Program Partner by participating in nine ACS Quality Programs.
Quality Verification Program (QVP)
The ACS QVP verification is the highest level of commitment a hospital can make to ensure that all patients receive optimal surgical care. It addresses all surgical specialties in the hospital and provides a proven strategy for achieving high quality surgical care and outcomes. QVP-verified hospitals undergo a rigorous evaluation process where providers across all departments and at every level demonstrate a coordinated effort to leverage data-driven care to attain high quality outcomes.
