Workshops to help PH hospitals, clinics achieve world standards, accreditation

MANILA, Philippines – Hospitals and clinics seeking to upgrade their standards and provide world-class patient care—and eventually secure international accreditation—can be at a loss over where to start.

Fortunately, a local company has committed itself to conducting regular workshops that will help them achieve all of that.  These workshops are courtesy of HealthCORE, the center for global healthcare management and medical tourism research and communications in the Philippines.

To start with, the workshops on “Clinical Audit” and “Continuous Quality Improvement: Tools & Techniques” will be held on Feb. 7-8, 2013 at La Breza Hotel, 155 Mother Ignacia Street, Diliman, Quezon City.

“The trend all over the world is for healthcare organizations to acquire international accreditation as they step up their patient care procedures, operations, and facilities to give the best care possible to their patients. Unfortunately, while many hospital owners and managers would like to get such accreditation, quite a number of them are needing some trainings and tools to help them,” said HealthCORE executive director Joyce Alumno.

For such hospitals and clinics, the workshops provided by HealthCORE are the most practical and cost-effective means for them to begin their journey towards accreditation and international quality standards of healthcare.

“These workshops provide Philippine hospitals with several benefits. First of all, the training that the hospitals receive is of the best quality; conducted by internationally respected experts in patient care, hospital management, and hospital operations.

“Second, these workshops are cost-effective. Similar trainings may be availed of overseas but at a much higher expense. Third, our workshops are especially customized to meet the needs of Filipino hospitals. And fourth, our workshop training conforms to international patient standards set by the International Society for Quality Healthcare (ISQua),” explained Alumno.

In terms of cost, availability, and content, HealthCORE workshops are tailor-fit for hospitals in the Philippines. Furthermore, since the workshop standards conform to ISQua, hospitals that finish the training will be one step ahead when it comes to accreditation.

“These workshops can really become the initial phase of a hospital’s quest for accreditation. We teach them everything they need to know about accreditation: we teach them the standards; we show them the process; and we provide them assistance in the survey should they decide to apply for the accreditation,” Alumno added.

All hospital and clinic administrators, whether from private or government sector, may attend the workshops.  However, seats are very limited so pre-registration is required.

For inquiries and/or registration, please get in touch with HealthCORE secretariat at +632 468.9999 / +63.908.8887880; fax +632 961.3377; or email info@healthcore.com.ph.
