The audit of clinical outcomes is one of the cornerstones of the foundation for good medical practice, and the BABS annually collects this type of data from its member doctors. Comparing this with national data on specific quality and performance indicators allows the BABS to establish average baseline trends in the specific sector of body sculpting.
Each year a log is compiled of the number of procedures performed, the areas of the body that have been treated and other specifics of patient characteristics. These are then used to assess performance ratios of successful outcomes and patient satisfaction.
The process of data collection and analysis not only establishes guidelines on the rate of risk, but also helps frame objectives for efforts of continuous improvement.
All data collected by the BABS is anonymised, and strictly adheres to all laws and best practices concerning the governance of data protection.
