Larry Nguyen, CEO of Summit Imaging sits down with Randy Snelling, Chief Physical Environment Officer at DNV Healthcare, to discuss Hospital Standards and how ISO, Vendor QMS and Engineers play a roll in the future of accreditation to increase the quality of care and reduce total cost of ownership.
A bit more about Hospital Accreditation from DNV GL
DNV GL's pioneering NIAHO® program integrates ISO 9001 with the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
It's time for a change.
We have dedicated ourselves to helping you empower quality and patient safety through a more efficient and outcomes-based accreditation program; restoring efficiency and value to hospital accreditation. Imagine accreditation surveys becoming something you look forward to not something you fear.
We received CMS Deeming Authority in 2008, and since then have accredited nearly 500 hospitals of all sizes and in every region of the United States. We are the first and only accreditation program to integrate the CMS Conditions of Participation with the ISO 9001 Quality Management Program. Our collaborative survey teams visit your hospital annually, not every three years, making each visit far less stressful and more of a routine check up on your success, not an epic investigation of your faults.
