The Rejuvenation Index© An Algorithm for Photo-documentation and “No Fault Indemnity”
Clinical governance in Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery is in its infancy and patient safety has been the subject of much debate and impending legislation. It is important that the Industry is seen to act in the best interests of patient safety. A mathematical algorithm is described for the standardisation of assessment of photo-documentation in aesthetic medicine and surgery therapies. This is presented as a mechanism for transparency and best practice in the Cosmetic Industry. It will improve the image of the Industry and enhance safety for patients and the clinics which are charged with their care. The adoption of these new tools for clinical audit make best practice a reality and have the potential to regenerate the industry.
