HCI works with organisations in Ireland and Northern Ireland to build Quality and Safety Management Systems that meet the requirements of the applicable standards and drive quality improvement throughout the organisation.


We have achieved this in the following sectors: Acute Care, Aged Care, Disability Services, Home Care, Regulatory Bodies, Mental Health Services, Child and Family Services and Primary Care and Community. HCI has significant experience in the development of systems for compliance with regulatory and accreditation frameworks.
