Regulatory, accreditation, and certification systems provide organisations with a framework to develop the quality and safety of care and services they offer. This can result in public recognition of their achievements. Organisations who utilise external evaluation systems are looking for continuous improvement of the quality and safety of care and strive for levels of excellence in their organisation.
Health Care Informed (HCI) has significant experience in the development of systems for compliance to regulatory and accreditation frameworks.
See Case Studies for samples of our work.
HCI has worked with a number of organisations to achieve accreditation and regulatory compliance including hospitals, aged care facilities, home care organisations, hospice, medical imaging facilities and medical laboratories. There are a multitude of accreditation and certification models which are available to healthcare providers. These include, to name but a few:
- Joint Commission International (JCI)
- ISO 9001:2008
- ISO 15189:2003
- Healthcare Area Specific Accreditation
- Healthcare Licensure/Certification
HCI works with organisations to determine what is most applicable and beneficial to them. Central to this is the understanding that all frameworks are only as beneficial as how the organisation approaches it. Pursuing certification or accreditation to achieve an award will only result in an organisation finding difficulties. Approached as a means to improve, can only result in benefits.
Upon determining the appropriate accreditation framework HCI develops a project plan for implementation. Outcomes, priorities, resources, and timeframes are included in the project plan.
