GHA and QAI have initiated a joint accreditation program for hospitals and clinics in India serving medical travel patients. GHA and QAI will work with accredited hospitals in India as a prerequisite to offering Global Healthcare Accreditation for Medical Travel Services in the region. The accreditation may be from a recognized national or international accreditation body, such as QAI and JCI. The GHA accreditation survey will include a surveyor from each organization using the GHA standards. QAI will also serve as GHA’s local partner in India, conducting joint training, workshops and advisory services and providing information about GHA accreditation and related programs developed to build patient trust in hospitals serving international and medical tourism patients.
Located in India, QAI was founded in order to create an ecosystem of education, training, quality improvement and accreditation. QAI seeks to provide a platform to stakeholders including professionals and organisations, associated with quality, to share their wisdom and knowledge. This will further provide tremendous opportunities to all concerned to learn and contribute in improving organisations engaged with QAI.
