Health care services, as well as providers of health care supplies, are important factors to the health of patients. Demands of patients and health insurances funds led to the fact that this area is increasingly subject to quality system requirements.
Hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing services and rehabilitation institutions in Germany are legally required to perform quality assurance activities and therefore they increasingly install quality systems and demand certification services.
The bases for certification in this area are not only EN ISO 9001 and EN ISO 13485, but also specific German certification standards like the QVH seal. In the future the specific standard EN 15224 for providers of health care services will play a major role. We will offer this service as soon national accreditation requirements are defined.
For performance of audits we have trained auditors with professional long experience in this demanding sector.
