Physician leadership is a core element of QualDerm’s model. We rely on our physician leaders to help guide QualDerm’s policies and procedures. The QualDerm Quality Council’s mission is to enable QualDerm to demonstrate its commitment to providing the highest quality and cost-effective access to medical services.
The Quality Council promotes and advances clinical excellence throughout our network including: patient safety, clinical quality, clinical risk management and patient satisfaction. It also facilitates the development of industry best practices among all QualDerm-affiliated practices.
The Quality Council includes physicians from each of QualDerm’s practice markets. Only physician members have Council voting privileges.
