AuditAssure

Ensure audit recommendations are completed

AuditAssure is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that allows you to manage, monitor and gather evidence on any audit process or recommendation, whether internal, external, national, clinical or from another source. The application is flexible enough to allow detailed plans to be created and individual ownerships to be distributed, so that boards, managers and even auditors can track implementation.

Health and social care organisations are subject to increasing numbers of audits, resulting in recommendations that all have to be reviewed and acted upon if you are to improve patient outcomes, eliminate risk and avoid poor inspections. Delivering comprehensive functionality, AuditAssure:

  • Captures any recommendation from any audit source,
  • Aligns the recommendation with audit type and objective,
  • Creates detailed recommendation plans,
  • Assigns ownership and
  • Sets milestone timescales.

The application enables you to prove that audit recommendations have been acted upon and provides the assurance required by regulators such as CQC, NICE and NHSLA in order for them to deliver positive assessments.

AuditAssure provides you with a fail-safe means of ensuring that audit recommendations are executed successfully, providing assurance to the board and evidence to external reviewers
