IONM PARTNERS

Improving patient safety & bottom lines.

IONM Services & Support

If your hospital team is considering outsourced intraoperative neuromonitoring IONM services, look no further than SpecialtyCare. We aim for continuous improvement every day, with every procedure, to ensure patients are receiving the best care possible. Our Clinical Quality Indicator Program tracks key measures of neuromonitoring performance that can be used to establish baseline standards and identify opportunities for improvement.

These measures include clinical variables, such as the incidence of adverse intraoperative neuromonitoring changes, and operational variables, such as the incidence of technical confounds during monitoring.
