About Tenet Healthcare
Tenet Healthcare Corporation is a healthcare services company whose subsidiaries and affiliates own and operate 49 acute care hospitals, 84 free-standing outpatient ambulatory surgery centers and diagnostic imaging centers in 11 states across the U.S.
Tenet's hospitals and outpatient centers are committed to providing quality care to each patient who walks through their doors. Tenet's Commitment to Quality strives to improve the quality of medical care and patient safety by evaluating processes and promoting best practices.
Through extensive data mining and information gathering, we have created and documented model clinical protocols, guidelines, and policies and procedures to improve patient and system safety processes company-wide.
Four-Pronged Approach to Patient Safety:
In our efforts to consistently improve patient safety, our plans and actions are focused on the following:
Patients - Our patients and their health are at the core of all our initiatives.
Evidence-Based Medicine - We leverage both internal and external evidence-based medicine to improve our processes.
Systems - A systems approach allows us to replicate processes and successes at multiple locations, while still allowing for some local modification to account for unique individual hospital requirements and culture.
Continuous Performance Improvement - We employ mature processes that rely on the use of data to consistently seek and achieve improvement.
