As individual practitioners and as a company, SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc., is dedicated to providing care that is:
Certification and Accreditation
ABC Certification of Facilities and Practitioners
SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. practitioners are certified by the American Board of Certification for Orthotics and Prosthetics (ABC), which means we've trained extensively and met the highest standards of our profession.
In fact, two certification facts set us apart from any other O&P provider in Southern California.
- More of our staff is American Board of Certification (ABC) - certified than any other provider in the region
- All 13 of our facilities are fully accredited
To check the credentials of other providers, call the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics at (703) 836-7114 or look at the ABC website at www.abcop.org. Ask for current certification status for orthotists and prosthetists and accreditation status of their facilities.
Joint Commission On Accreditation Of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) Reporting
In 1995, JCAHO, the United States' largest healthcare accrediting organization, included specific accreditation standards for hospitals relating to the services provided by outside orthotics and prosthetics vendors.
Although O&P providers are not directly accountable to JCAHO, we believe it is our responsibility to serve hospitals and patients to the highest possible standards of care.
We voluntarily monitor our compliance with JCAHO standards and regularly provide necessary documentation to hospitals for our services, and we collaborate with the hospitals we serve to demonstrate and report compliance for JCAHO review.
The hospitals we work with report that SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc., is the only O&P company to provide them with the documentation they need for their JCAHO accreditation reporting requirements. If you need help or have questions with this process call your local SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. office.
SCOPe Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc. completes background checks. Does your current provider?
When O&P companies hire individual practitioners to treat your patients they should perform background checks which would also include determining if the practitioner has ever been convicted of fraud or abuse.
