What we do
We benefit hospitals by building and maintaining a sustainable process approach to help ensure consistency in high-risk processes that results in safer patient care.
We utilize our extensive knowledge in the very industries that healthcare is attempting to benchmark; nuclear and aerospace. Having worked with NASA, FAA and the Dept. of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), both constructed of many very critical and complex processes, we understand how to best translate this knowledge to healthcare.We advise hospitals on how to best align their accreditation with their strategy and business plans and processes
We institute the concept of Cost of Quality in hospital’s accreditation
We optimize your accreditation so the benefits are fully realized. By linking with your hospital’s strategic and business processes, your accreditation moves to a financial asset on the hospital balance sheet.
We create innovative and sustainable processes for achieving your accreditation goals
How we got here
In 2012, we met as contracted consultants working on the largest ISO 9001 implementation in healthcare.
During this time of implementing a QMS in over 130 hospitals simultaneously, we noticed something curious: the traditional implementation method (intense workshops for documentation, leadership, and auditor training) used for the past several years in healthcare simply was not effective.
We realized that we could no longer put ISO into healthcare, we had to put healthcare into ISO…thus our fresh perspective and a means for sustaining the efforts
We started talking about the need to provide better deliverables to healthcare if we expect better results
We understood the importance and benefit of our intimate knowledge of nuclear and aerospace to your patients safety
Having worked in hospitals and in quality, we put our heads together and formed BlueSynergy Associates, LLC.
We got here by listening to your complaints, your wants and your needs
We got here by creating a resource of shared, experiential knowledge that will help you on your journey
We got here to help you create a more sustainable system and therefore a safer patient environment
