The impact of international accreditation on PX worldwide


Patients seeking for medical treatment worldwide must rely on the adherence of the medical service provider to ethics, quality and the understanding of service needs as well as the assurance of the “continuum of care” and best possible patient experience starting with the preparation of the patient’s admission and not ending once the patient is discharged.


Accreditation is the process of external, outside experts to conduct a review of the hospital or clinic to validate existing quality, patient safety, patient-hospital interaction and other applicable standards and to improve the medical and non-clinical services provided to patients and accompanying persons.
