National and International Accreditations and Certifications like the Full NABH, Entry Level NABH, NABL & JCI are considered prestigious acknowledgements of the Healthcare Quality as they substantially improve the safety and quality of care and services provided for Large, Medium and Small Healthcare Organisations. Quality Standards form the basis of an objective evaluation of the process that can help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. Most of these improvements being possible only by with grass root changes in the practices followed across the Organisation.

National Accreditation Board for Testing & Calibration Laboratories (NABL), similar to the NABH, is also an autonomous body, under the Quality Council of India. The primary objective being to maintain an accreditation system for laboratories suitable for India, developed in accordance with relevant national and international standards and guides. The NABL Accreditation is a formal recognition of the technical competence of a laboratory based on third party assessment and following international guidelines. Trained Assessors taken from institutions all over India, with established credentials in testing and calibration activities carry out the assessment.
The Joint Commission in an independent, not-for-profit organization that has accredited and certified more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. The Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization?s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
The Joint Commission International came about in 1994 to meet the healthcare quality accreditation requirements in countries outside the United States. Though local needs vary and diverse cultures present unique challenges, the Joint Commission International (JCI) has become recognised as a consistent beacon for patient safety and quality improvement in the global community. JCI has a presence in more than 90 countries today.
JCI works with health care organizations, governments, and international advocates to promote rigorous standards of care and provide solutions for achieving peak performance. The accreditation process seeks to help organizations identify and resolve problems and to inspire them to improve the safety and quality of care and services provided. The process focuses on systems critical to the safety and the quality of care, treatment and services. The Joint Commission Standards are developed with input from health care professionals, providers, subject matter experts, consumers, government agencies and employers. They are informed by the scientific literature and approved by the Board of Commissioners.
Our approach to the JCI Accreditation makes it a more rigorous exercise when compared with the NABH. While the aim of both accreditation systems are to improve the safety and quality of care and services provided, we focus during the JCI more on systems critical to the safety and the quality of care, treatment and services. The Standards form the basis of an objective evaluation process that can help us measure, assess and improve performance. By involving the staff at all levels we work to making improvements possible only by changes in the practices followed across the Hospital. For this reason in the JCI implementation we find it essential that the senior management of the Hospital from the Directors to the Departmental Heads demonstrate their total commitment to the exercise, with their participation at every stage of the accreditation process. The evident display of their involvement will help in ensuring the participation of all in the process.
