Global accreditation leader, Temos International, announced the accreditation of its ambulatory care standards by the prestigious International External Evaluation Association (IEEA), an offshoot of the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua). Developed in consultation with a team of multidisciplinary experts, the IEEA accredited Temos “Quality in Outpatient Care” standards offer tailored options for outpatient, day surgery, diagnostic services, walk-in, and urgent care clinics including cosmetic surgery services, to improve the quality of care for domestic as well as international patients.
Global changes in the delivery of healthcare standards are putting more pressure on outpatient services. To help providers accelerate their excellence in delivering clinical quality, business metrics, and patient experience, Temos submitted its standards to IEAA for its enhanced and rigorous review and accreditation.
“The global shift from inpatient to outpatient care continues to grow. Patients and payers prefer the convenience, quicker visits, lower costs, and safer setting offered by outpatient, ambulatory, day surgery, walk-in, and urgent care clinics”, explains Temos Founder and CEO, Dr. Claudia Mika. “Changing patient expectations are driving business to clinics that can deliver less invasive surgical options, faster recovery times, lower infection rates, and better follow up including telehealth options.”
These challenges and opportunities make Temos’ accreditation program an excellent choice for outpatient services that want to elevate their clinical and non-clinical services to the highest international standards. Temos accreditation demonstrates commitment to patients, staff, and third parties to patient safety, risk management, clinical care, and more. With this newly accredited program, outpatient services anywhere in the world can benefit from Temos’ unique online tools to simplify and accelerate the accreditation process to set them apart from competitors.
ISQua and its International External Evaluation Association (IEEA) are known as the “Accreditor of Accreditors” and recognized as the gold standard for programs offered by global accrediting organizations such as Temos. Temos continues to improve and transform its accreditation programs to offer the very highest healthcare standards.
