Technical audit for the quality registries
The quality registries SKRS and the Southern Centre for Registries have tasked Funka with performing an audit of the technical accessibility of the Swedish Quality Registry for the Rehabilitiation of the Visually Impaired.
-We started with an audit of the technical aspects of the quality registry and will now proceed with more check-ups and other measures, in order to ensure that all users can access the information on our websites, says Susanne Albrecht. The goal is that SKRS and the SCR’s website be accessible for all.
A technical audit is done by letting Funka’s accessibility experts check the interface, point by point, against a checklist. They ensure that all parts work for persons with different disabilities. If needed, the interface is also tested with different assistive technologies.The experts mark down every flaw they encounter and also give the client an oral presentation on what they found.
- Both the written report and the oral presentation was very informative for us, says Susanne Albrecht, Chief of Development and Project Manager at the SCR.
The policy committee for SKRS has enforced the project together with the SCR. The registrar for SKRS is Anne Granath, licensed optician assistant operations manager for the section for the hard of hearing, visually impaired and interpretation services in Western Sweden. The steering committee consists of low vision trainers, occupational therapists, eye care nurses, counselors and two patient representatives from the Swedish Association of the Visually Impaired.
The Southern Centre for Registries is the Southern Region of Care’s centre of registries and has offices in Karlskrona and Lund. The SCR and other national centres for registries are responsible for the development of registries of quality in regards to technical ICT-solutions, statistics, research, validation of data, quality improvements, patient reported indicators and to create synergy effects between registries.
