What’s next after JCI, ISQua, ISO? How can your hospital gain a competitive advantage?
Now that your hospital and staff have gone through the rigorous paces to obtain JCI, ISQua or ISO accreditation you may ask yourself what’s next. In the competitive world of medical tourism, many hospitals need to get the word out regarding their certification. But in a market where the majority of hospitals all carry the same accreditations, it will be the hospital that seeks specialized certification for their international patient services department that will stand out.
The Medical Tourism Association understands that International Patient Services Certification – IPSC™ will allow hospitals to take that next step. What will IPSC™ certification do for us? As the medical tourism market continues to grow and hospitals start to blend together, it will be the hospitals that go the extra mile in showing that they are consistently improving processes and procedures in addition to setting higher standards that will attract the market share. International Patient Services Certification IPSC™ will assist buyers of healthcare, insurance companies, employers, benefits directors and consumers to the hospitals that stand above the rest. So when consumers are deciding what hospital will not only exceed their healthcare needs, but provide an outstanding medical tourism experience, it will be the hospitals that obtain IPSC™ that their compasses direct them to.
