The Aeronautics Health Service Day, celebrated on December 2, highlights the activities of the Health Organizations and the Directorate of Health of the Air Force (DIRSA). In addition to improving health care, constantly promoting excellence in health care, and supporting the operational actions of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), the Quali SISAU 100 Program, created this year, 2022, by encouraging innovation and optimization of resources and means, meets what is desired for now and for the future: quality and sustainability.
Quali SISAU 100 Program
This is a program created by DIRSA, aligned with the Directives of the Air Force Command and with the Strategic Concept – Air Force 100, adding qualification and innovation for the modernization and sustainability of the Air Force Health System (SISAU).
The signature of the Quali SISAU 100 Program, sanctioned in September 2022 during the IV Edition of the Meeting of Managers from the General Staff Command (COMGEP), in Salvador (BA), carries the motto “Building a future of excellence in health”. The program aims, among others, to establish actions, deadlines, and responsibilities related to the restructuring of the SISAU, through a new health care model, articulated in a network, that incorporates processes and activities supported by information technology (IT) tools. The goal is to ensure quality and efficient care, thus providing an increase in the satisfaction of its users and beneficiaries at costs that are compatible with the current economic-financial reality.
Projects 2022-2023 of Quali SISAU 100
According to DIRSA, the choice of projects is in accordance with the Quality Manual (MCA 160-6) – one of the objectives is to implement good practices in the wide range of activities of the Air Force Health Organizations (OSA).
Among the projects established to be developed in the assistance, economic and sustainability areas is the adoption of the “Invisibility Vest” – which is a garment made of reflective material used to inhibit nursing professionals from being interrupted during medication. The goal is to make the method even safer, so that the professional is not interfered with during the administration of medication.
The creation of the Humanization and Palliative Care Commission (CHCP), a project focused on the welcoming, on the promotion of the patients’ quality of life through prevention, and on the relief of suffering caused by the disease regardless of the evolutionary phase, not only in terminal condition.
Another project is the Systematization of Nursing Care (SAE), standardized to the actions of assistance by the nurse, which has the objective of instrumentalizing the resolution of the beneficiaries’ problems and making the care individualized, as well as basing and scientifically supporting the nursing actions.
Still in the care area, Checkpoint Odonto proposes a welcoming approach focused on integral care in the Odontoclinics/Division/Dental Section, through registration, checking the user’s vital signs before the service, integrating the context of Primary Health Care and timely referral, if necessary, to the Comprehensive Health Care Center (CAIS).
One of the projects in the economic area is the Control of Payable Remainders (RP). Health care costs are high. Thus, the economic area is a sensitive point in the maintenance of good practices and the use of financial resources. The purpose of this project is to optimize planning and, consequently, to make management and control more effective, to prevent re-inscription, and to avoid the loss of budget resources.
Finally, OSA Recycles is the systematic implementation of waste segregation at source. The intention is to make feasible and to stimulate recycling in the Health Organizations. Thus, any amount of material disposed of properly provides a reduction in collection costs, stimulates sustainability, and contributes to the preservation of the environment.
Project Implementation and Continued Study
In this first year of the Program, the strategic projects are being coordinated by DIRSA together with the Sao Paulo Air Force Hospital (HFASP) and will be gradually implemented in all OSA during the year 2023.
The Director of Health, Medical Major-Brigadier Cloer Vescia Alves, highlighted the moment. “The Quali SISAU 100 is a continuous improvement program that aims to implement strategic projects and improve systemic processes in favor of excellence in the health services of the Aeronautics.
Throughout its 80 years of history, DIRSA has achieved achievements that, as of this moment, enable the foundation for the future of an increasingly better Health System. Thus, we salute the valuable legacy left by the brave men and women who honored their uniforms for the physical and mental well-being of the beneficiaries of the Health System, and we dignify their memories by projecting a Health Service that is tireless in its search for sustainability and innovation, and quality for all our users,” concluded the General Officer.
