Since the initial audit in 2001, we have completed several follow-up audits. Most recently, in 2014, we have repeated our recommendation that Alberta Health Services strengthen its process to monitor the performance of non-hospital surgical facilities.
Objective and Scope
The objective of our audit was to determine whether Alberta Health Services (AHS) has implemented our recommendation to strengthen its process to monitor the performance of contracted non-hospital surgical facilities.
We conclude that Alberta Health Services has implemented our recommendation by establishing an oversight process to monitor the performance of contracted non-hospital surgical facilities and improving its processes to record and analyze performance information for those surgical facilities.
