The GHA Difference

The GHA Accreditation for Medical Travel complements existing national and international clinical accreditation programs. While these programs traditionally focus on the quality and patient safety infrastructure for the entire organization, GHA conducts a deep review of the organization’s medical travel program to enhance the Patient Experience, Sustainable Business Processes and Patient-Focused Clinical Processes. Thus, our standards are specific to medical travel and not redundant to JCI or other clinical accreditations.

Focused on the needs of Medical Travelers and International Patients

The GHA program complements existing national and international clinical accreditation programs. While these programs traditionally focus on the clinical aspects of care for the entire organization, GHA conducts a deep review of the International or Global Patient Services program, or the entity within an organization that serves the medical travel patient.

Impacts an Organization’s Financial Bottom Line

GHA ensures that organizations receive solutions that impact not just patient outcomes, but business performance and the organization’s financial health. Because GHA focuses on the entire Medical Travel Care ContinuumTM-those business functions within an organization that
impact the medical travel program, such as marketing, finance, and technology are included.

Supported by a Diverse Group of Stakeholders

Our advisory board includes representatives from leading hospitals and insurance companies, as well as organizations focused on patient experience, risk management, employee benefits, and medical travel facilitation. Additionally, GHA regularly surveys buyers of health services to
assure our standards are finely tuned to the needs of traveling patients seeking care under a variety of circumstances.

Provides Organizations with Increased Visibility

GHA regularly participates in international healthcare events including hosting medical director summits, participating in ministerial summits, roundtables, and focus groups, while quickly building a growing social media presence. These initiatives and others have allowed us to develop a vast database that benefits our clients through visibility, connectivity, and networking events.
