What is the philosophy of Navy Medicine’s quality assurance program?

Navy Medicine has a quality assurance program that keeps track of how well quality of care is being serviced. These measurements are the focus of The Joint Commission (TJC) and the Medical Inspector General (MED IG).

Where can I learn more about The Joint Commissions’ requirement established with Navy Medicine?

If you want to learn more about the TJC’s requirements you can read it here OPNAVIST 6320.7 series Health Care Quality Insurance Policies for Operating Forces.

We also have the BUMEDINST 6010.13 series, Quality Assurance Program, which is a program that lists the elements for improvement for the naval hospitals, medical clinics, and dental clinics.

Quality Healthcare has always been the main focus of the Military Training Facilities (MTF) and Dental Training Facilities (DTF).

What 3 parts comprise the general guidance of Navy Medicine in quality healthcare?

To learn more about the general guidance of this program check out the Navy’s Health Care Relations Program (BUMED Instruction 6300.10 series). This program is broken up into three parts which include:

  • Internal
  • External
  • Patient relations
