As an educational institution in the fore front of imparting knowledge and learning through learning and training initiatives, topical seminars and sharing of best practices and rich experience of more than a 4 decades of health care delivery, the Sankara Nethralaya Academy is conducting a high power seminar on ‘Accreditation for Hospitals’ a high priority area for health care providers.
The seminar is meant to educate and create awareness among health care managers, healthcare entrepreneurs currently operating their own health care institutions and individuals and corporate bodies planning to enter into this fast growing and high potential field.
The seminar would educate participants on the need and distinct advantages of being accredited, both from the point of creating a high reputation and image leading to high public esteem and confidence and also for the purpose of tie-ups with insurance providers etc. Accreditation by premier bodies like the NABH places Indian health care providers on par with the best of class hospitals in the world, which makes them a highly preferred health care destination for overseas patients too.
The accreditation seminar would cover the entire gamut of quality and work flow processes and practices both clinical and non-clinical and also minute details like employee educational credentials to advanced equipment imperative for accreditation by prestigious certifying bodies both national and international. Accreditation increases the standard of hospitals in India and supports them to provide world class treatment to patients which will gradually boost Medical Tourism in India. It would bring in both the self-paying patients who choose hospitals on their own and the second category of patients who select hospitals through their agency or third party, accreditation brings in the much needed credibility as it symbolizes quality, it helps in branding of the hospital, enhances hospital value and reliability making India truly a great Medical Tourism destination.
The overwhelming response that the Sankara Nethralaya Academy received for the recent seminars conducted in the critical areas of Healthcare Management like HR in Healthcare, Customer Care in Hospitals and Materials Management for Hospitals, topical seminar in Hospital Management and the resultant learning have come as a major boost and encouragement to conduct this highly topical and need of the hour seminar.
