GHA’s flagship program was developed for healthcare providers seeking to enhance patient experience for medical travelers and improve productivity and business performance of the medical travel program. GHA’s accreditation seal validates that the hospital or ambulatory center has implemented best practices against the GHA Standards 4.1 (accredited by ISQUA) focusing on three main competencies: Patient Experience, Sustainable Business Practices and Patient-Focused Clinical Processes.
Position the organization for increased leadership in the international healthcare industry;
Access to narrow networks (buyers of healthcare services)
Validate the quality and performance of your medical travel program;
Enhance the patient experience across the organization’s Medical Travel Care Continuum;
Join a prestigious network of GHA Accredited facilities around the globe with opportunities for networking and sharing best practices;
Further solidify commitment to excellence in the management and delivery of medical travel services.
Hospitals and ambulatory centers (including dental clinics) must already possess a national or international accreditation and a formal medical travel program or international department.
GHA accreditation is valid for 3 years.
Typically, between 3-5 months.
Length of survey:
3-day accreditation survey for hospitals and 2-day survey for ambulatory centers. However, we have recently begun to offer a remote survey option, which may add one more day to the survey but with shorter daily sessions.
