Quality management

ISO 9001 is one of the most recognisable international standards for quality management – certification indicates that an organisation’s service or product meets a certain level of quality. ISO 9001 is the standard accepted by all private health funds.

The Australian NSQHS Standards provide a nationally consistent statement of the level of care consumers can expect from health service organisations.

A surveillance audit is undertaken regularly to ensure that our processes are monitored, maintained and reviewed and that improvements are continuously implemented. A re-certification audit is conducted every 12 months, with all safety and quality processes assessed to ensure the standards required by ISO 9001 and the NSQHS are still being exceeded.
