SRC (Surgical Review Corporation) is the administrator of numerous accreditation programs including metabolic and bariatric surgery. SRC is founded in 2003, in USA and it is an international, non-profit, independent healthcare institution.
The programs SRC manages are focused on improving the safety, efficiency, efficacy and quality of patient care worldwide.
Managed by SRC, SOEMBS program is one of the most accurate and prestigious accreditation program in the world. There are 2 main reasons of this.
First, SRC is one of the world’s leading healthcare institutions in this field. SRC aims to create standards in the field of metabolic and bariatric surgery and it undertakes this mission with a global vision. Therefore, SOEMBS program is open to all metabolic and bariatric surgeons in the world.
Second reason is related to SRC’s database, BOLD. As a requirement of the accreditation program, all surgeons participating in the program are obliged to share their patients’ data with the BOLD database in accordance with patient confidentiality.
Thanks to the international vision of SRC and the data provided by participants all over the world, BOLD has become the largest metabolic and bariatric database in the world with the data of over 600.000 patients.
Today BOLD database is accepted as a reference in all studies done in the field of metabolic and bariatric surgery and the statistics of BOLD database are accepted as the golden standard.
Thanks to these factors, SRC has become one of the most respectable healthcare institution, and the programs managed by SRC have earned rightful renown among the most prestigious accreditation programs in the world.
