American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians, Inc.
The American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians, Inc. (ABQAURP) was founded in 1977, and today it is the largest organization in the nation of healthcare professionals across multiple disciplines. ABQAURP is a leader in the Health Care Quality and Management (HCQM) field, which is essential for people working in all health care professions and medical specialties. The ultimate goal of ABQAURP is to improve the overall quality of health care, while also providing physicians with the healthcare education and certification they need to deliver the very best care to their patients.
In this day and age, there’s a striking emphasis on health care education that is not only high in quality but also cost-effective. This has led to an increase in demand for professionals who are responsible for adhering to the high standards of quality in care. There is also a newfound focus on the importance of quality care and how it relates to patient safety. All administrations and health care providers should make it a point to demonstrate their commitment to providing high-quality care. When you combine this increase in the focus on quality and safety with the rising costs of healthcare in the United States and the growing concerns about unnecessary readmissions and inappropriate care, it’s easy to see why the need for Health Care Quality certification is so great.
People who are responsible for leading hospitals, groups, physicians’ organizations, managed care entities, and care organizations can demonstrate their commitment to quality by adopting the tools and techniques necessary for improving patient safety, reducing the number of medical errors, eliminating services that are wasteful or unnecessary, and avoiding delays that are potentially harmful to patient care. This has led to a system that is not only safer but is also more efficient and cost-effective, and is better equipped to meet the needs of patients, purchasers, providers, and payers.
