What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is not simply passing an examination and receiving a diploma. It is a collaboration between Acreditas Global and your healthcare organization to achieving the highest standards in healthcare.
Accreditation is an ongoing process that will constantly keep your healthcare organization at the forefront of quality care. Receiving accreditation is evidence of your pledge of quality to your patients and your community.
Accreditation begins as a self-evaluation process based on the latest industry standards, constant education and peer review. At the end of the process, an accredited organization learns to make constant improvement a natural part of its processes so that it is constantly striving to elevate the patient experience.
