ERMC Receives Accreditation from DNV GL
Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) announces the successful completion of its new accreditation process from DNV GL - Healthcare.
By earning accreditation, ERMC has demonstrated it meets or exceeds patient safety standards (Conditions of Participation) set forth by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. DNV GL's accreditation program is the only one to integrate the ISO 9001 Quality Management System with the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
"The DNV GL program allows Eaton Rapids Medical Center to add another layer of quality standards that separate us above other hospitals in the Tri-County area," explains Kris Allen, Vice President of Patient Care Services at Eaton Rapids Medical Center. "We are committed to annual surveys that create a culture of hardwired quality excellence every day with every patient, every time."
Eaton Rapids Medical Center has three years from the date of its accreditation to achieve compliance with ISO 9001, a quality management system used by performance-driven organizations around the world to advance their quality and sustainability objectives.
"We have taken an entirely different approach to accreditation, and hospitals are really responding," says DNV GL - Healthcare CEO Patrick Horine. "Since accreditation is a must-have credential for just about every hospital in this country, why not make it more valuable, and get more out of it? That's where ISO 9001 comes into play, and turns the typical get-your-ticket-punched accreditation exercise into a quality transformation."
DNV GL's accreditation program, called NIAHO (Integrated Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations), involves annual hospital surveys - instead of every three years - and encourages hospitals to openly share information across departments and to discover improvements in clinical workflows and safety protocols.
