Accreditation is a business asset, not an inspection.
As DNV accredited hospitals are discovering, accreditation does not have to be a one-size-fits all inspection, it can be an engine for continuous quality improvement driven by the needs of each hospital.
Only DNV integrates ISO 9001:2008 with Medicare Conditions of Participation.
Nearly 200 hospitals have switched to DNV Accreditation in the past two years, since CMS granted deeming authority to DNV Healthcare. These hospitals consistently remark on the refreshing difference,and how DNV Accreditation fits seamlessly into the hospitals’ quality programs.
The first major difference all hospitals notice is the collaborative approach of the surveyors. By employing annual surveys, DNV is able to maintain consistency among the survey teams and promote continuous improvement instead of fault finding.
