As an IVF clinic, it is essential to ensure that all operations within the facility are carried out with the highest level of professionalism and efficiency. One critical aspect of achieving and maintaining this level of performance is through regular audits. There are numbers of key performance indicators mentioned in Vienna and Maribor consensus to assess our performance.

Audits are systematic and independent assessments of processes and procedures within the clinic, like:

  • Designed to identify areas of risk
  • Detect any inconsistencies
  • Ensure compliance with regulatory standards.
  • IVF clinic audits cover different aspects, ranging from clinical procedures, and laboratory protocols to administrative processes.

    Clinical audits focus primarily on the medical procedures within the clinic. They assess the quality of the medical care provided to patients, adherence to clinical protocols, patient safety measures, clinical outcomes, and the documentation of medical records and reports.

    Laboratory audits, on the other hand, assess the performance of the laboratories involved in IVF processes. They examine the quality control measures in place, equipment cleanliness, and maintenance, as well as the proficiency of the laboratory staff.

    Administrative audits focus on evaluating the clinic’s administrative and management systems in that particular laboratory.
