Competent doctors, operating efficiently within teams, are critical to the provision of high-quality and safe care for patients. When deficits go undetected or unaddressed, physician performance and patient safety can be jeopardized. For instance,
performance problems in the domains of knowledge and professionalism have been linked to subsequent disciplinary action by state medical boards.
Remediation is an intervention, or suite of interventions, required in response to assessment against healthcare standards with the aim of remedying underperformance so the doctor can return to safe practice. As a part of each assessment, LifeGuard® issues a comprehensive report. If remediation is needed, LifeGuard® is able to provide oversight and ensure appropriate completion of the recommended remediation plan, as developed by the LifeGuard® team.
