Campbell County Health (CCH) announces the successful completion of its accreditation process from DNV GL - Healthcare.
By earning accreditation, CCH has demonstrated it meets or exceeds patient safety standards (Conditions of Participation) set forth by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. DNV GL's accreditation program is the only one to integrate the ISO 9001 Quality Management System with the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
DNV GL's accreditation program, called NIAHO® (Integrated Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations), involves annual hospital surveys – instead of every three years – and encourages hospitals to openly share information across departments and to discover improvements in clinical workflows and safety protocols. This is the third annual accreditation survey of CCH by DNV GL.
The DNV GL program is consistent with our long-term commitment to quality and patient safety," says Sue Ullrich, Director of Quality and Risk Management. "The ability to integrate ISO 9001 quality standards with our clinical and financial processes is a major step forward."
