In Oct. 2014, after a painstaking survey over a one-year period, BIMC Hospital Nusa Dua, was awarded international accreditation by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI), the first in Indonesia, and one of only two hospitals in SE Asia to gain the coveted accreditation.
Almost two years later and part of the post accreditation commitment, BIMC Hospital Nusa Dua recently passed the mandatory periodic review by the ACHS’s assessors, Dr. Maria Strickland and Professor Marc Tennant, achieving “mastery” level from the initial survey.
The Periodic Review is an on-site analysis and survey that seeks to assist in maintaining the accreditation standards for continuous improvement in quality, safety and service.
The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) is recognized as the leading health care accreditation body in Australia and now meets overseas requests for a quality healthcare accreditation program through ACHS International (ACHSI).
ACHSI is a wholly owned subsidiary company of ACHS and extends ACHS’s mission and vision internationally.
Established in July 2005, ACHSI has quickly developed a strong market identity internationally and built valuable relationships. ACHSI’s reputation for providing high levels of member support is made possible through a vast international network of highly qualified, trained and experienced surveyors and consultants.
The ACHS is administrated by a secretariat of approximately 50 employees and has a surveyor workforce of industry peers made up of senior health care professionals in organizations across Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, India, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates.
Accreditation is a public recognition by a health care accreditation body of the achievement of accreditation standards by a health care organization, demonstrated through an independent external peer review assessment of that organization’s level of performance in relation to specific standards.
The ACHSI provides a range of accreditation services focused on the specific needs of each organization, utilizing internationally recognized standards that are focused on the key attributes of a health care organization that is committed to the concept of continuous quality improvement.
