EQuIPNational Corporate Health Services Field Review
With the implementation of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care's (the Commission's) National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards, ACHS is designing a product for corporate offices with direct oversight of healthcare facilities, which is in line with the NSQHS Standards and EQuIPNational.
EQuIPNational Corporate Health Services comprises the ten NSQHS Standards plus the additional five EQuIP-content standards, to ensure member organisations have a comprehensive accreditation and quality improvement assessment program that is organisation-wide. Organisations may choose to apply the 10 NSQHS Standards-aligned program, or the 15 EQuIPNational Standards-aligned program. ACHS accreditation programs are based on partnerships and consultations with key stakeholders and participants in the healthcare industry, so that the standards and accreditation services reflect their needs and encourage ownership of the program. Therefore, we are appealing to corporate offices to provide feedback on this draft, irrespective of whether you intend to subscribe to this program.
