The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare aim to protect patients and provide a strategic approach to improving safety, quality and reliability in health services.
HCI provide quality and safety management system development, implementation and support. We work with your organisation to provide patient centred care and improved service. Our focus is on developing a solution that meets regulatory requirements and can improve the care you provide.
HCI services for Acute Care include:
Regulation and Accreditation
Group and Clinical Governance
Quality and Risk Audits
Incident and Complaint Investigation
The Acute Care sector is under constant change. Implementing quality management systems and achieving international accreditation can assist hospitals maintain high standards of patient care during change. In addition, the looming introduction of mandatory licensing, from the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), covering all public and private healthcare providers will require the provision of a high-quality health service delivered in an effective way, in a safe environment.
The need for high quality, and more importantly, safe care is the constant focus for all providers of acute care. In today’s environment of cost containment, along with increased accountability, there is an increased importance on the need for practical, integrated systems, which not only assist the hospital in providing effective care, but also fulfil regulatory requirements.
HCI has significant experience working with acute care hospitals in achieving Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation, Caspe Healthcare Knowledge Systems (CHKS) Accreditation and HIQA Compliance.
