Hospital Accreditation
GHQIA provides hospitals access to the well- established standards of ACHS International , with notable added advantages to the accreditation process :
• Assignment of a local partner who can offer accurate , localised feedback and continuous guidance .
• Option to conduct regular mock assessments and readiness diagnostics of processes , procedures , and outcomes to gear up for the actual audit .
• Overall cost-effectiveness through a localised engagement structure .
CoE Accreditation
The Centre of Excellence ( CoE ) Accreditation is a firstto-market initiative allowing GHQIA members to undertake accreditation in niche areas of clinical expertise .
GHQIA will apply the ACHS International standards in a focused manner , conducting a deep-dive assessment of the organisation on those selected fronts .
As part of the excellence requirements and to ensure stand-out achievements in the identified specialty , the organisation is required to participate in the ACHS International Clinical Indicator Program ( CIP ) to benchmark themselves against best- inclass providers and strive for continuous improvements during the time they are accredited .
Clinic Accreditation
With specialist clinics taking on an increasingly critical role in the patient journey , the accreditation serves as a tool to help clinics communicate their commitment to care excellence and differentiate themselves in a saturated market .
Through the accreditation program , members can tap on the expertise of industry experts for advice and guidance on all aspects of clinical operations , including digital health adoption and other innovative healthcare practices .
The GHQIA member network also offers a platform to facilitate knowledge and best practice sharing amongst fellow providers , opening doors to potential creative collaborations .
