The Copastar, opening its doors in Copacabana, is literally the star of Rede D’Or in Rio. It will join the portfolio of eight other hospitals in the group, with the difference being the cutting-edge unit. You will have, for example, innovative techniques in neurosurgery and cardiac surgery.
– Even in times of crisis, we persist and continue growing attentive to quality, and thus maintaining the loyalty of doctors and patients. We seek to offer technical quality and state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure, as well as innovation and highly competent professionals – says director Rodrigo Gavina.
In the last 12 months, Rede D’Or has been expanding outpatient services, with new medical offices in the network units. Another novelty was the inauguration of the pediatric emergency in Barra D’Or, at the beginning of 2016.
In other recent Copa news, it appears the National Agency for Supplementary Health (ANS) has released the list of hospitals that meet important quality criteria to measure the standard of care provided to the population. The data show the performance of the establishments according to three indicators: accreditation, hospital readmission rate and patient safety. This is the first time that ANS has provided information on providers’ attributes, providing subsidies so that consumers can monitor and evaluate services. Of the list of 131 hospitals, 15 are from Rede D’Or São Luiz, among them Copa D’Or, Rios D’Or and State Children’s Hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
“Quality is a priority for ANS and this classification of hospitals brings transparency and security to the health system,” says ANS Sector Development Director, Martha Oliveira. “We will soon expand the evaluation for the Diagnosis and Therapy Support Services (SADT) and for the offices and we will expand the discussion about quality of the Quality Assurance Program of the Service Providers (Qualiss)”, explains the director.
The list of accredited hospitals shows all establishments that have the highest quality certification issued by accrediting health care institutions. Currently, 87% of the hospitals in Rede D’Or São Luiz have accreditation. Accreditation is an external verification procedure of institutional resources and processes adopted by institutions and measures the quality of care through a set of previously established standards. Its voluntary nature presupposes that only those institutions that are genuinely interested in improving the quality of their services qualify for evaluation. Visit their facebook page.
