QUALISS aims to stimulate the qualification of all health care providers (hospitals, clinics, laboratories and health professionals) in supplementary health and consists of the disclosure of previously defined qualification attributes in a transparent manner and the evaluation of the qualification of service providers. . In this way, QUALISS increases the availability of information so that beneficiaries and society in general have more discretion and choice. It is an initiative of the National Supplementary Health Agency (ANS) to induce improvement in the quality of health care.
In April 2017, ANS released, for the first time, quality information from all providers participating in the program. Participating institutions include health professionals, clinics, emergency services, hospitals, day hospitals, laboratories, and home care services (homecare), offering subsidies for users to choose and compare services. Part of this information was released through a search engine.
The professional qualification disclosed (Specialist Title, Residence, Master, Doctorate and Postgraduate Lato sensu) includes 35,000 health professionals, including nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, speech therapists, nutritionists, physicians, dentists, psychologists, and occupational therapists, and is available in a listing published in Agency Portal on QUALISS website.
Recently, ANS has refined this qualification search system for healthcare providers. Among the novelties are the new visual identity, the interface and the inclusion of search for institutions with patient safety core or that carry out one or more quality induction projects: Adequate Childbirth, Elderly Care and OncoRede.
For accreditation, which is an external verification to assess the quality of care through a set of pre-established standards, from now on the user will be able to filter accredited providers by Accreditation type: Padi, JCI, ONA 3, etc.
