EQuIP5

EQuIP5 (5th edition of the ACHS Evaluation and Quality Improvement Program), is a four-year continuous quality assessment and improvement accreditation program for health care organisations that supports excellence in consumer / patient care and services.  The arrangement of elements under graded ratings that reflect increasing maturity of quality improvement activity has been designed to assist and support health care organisations and health services in their quality improvement efforts.

EQuIP was developed by the ACHS to help health care organisations strive for excellence and was designed to be used by all types of organisations which provide health care. Effective use of EQuIP requires an integrated organisational approach to quality improvement.
