The prestigious International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua), now known as IEEA, has accredited Temos International Healthcare Accreditation standards “Quality in International Patient Care” and “Excellence in Medical Tourism” for hospitals and clinics worldwide. Temos International is the Diplomatic Council's global partner for healthcare certification.
ISQua, known as the “Accreditor of Accreditors” is universally recognized as the “gold standard” for global accrediting organizations. Temos, a German-based international accreditationbody, offers a unique set of patient-centered clinical and nonclinical standards focusing on hospitals and clinics that serve international patients. With ISQua accreditation, Temos joins an elite group of international accreditation organizations to offer the very highest healthcare standards.
ISQua’s International Accreditation Program provides worldwide recognition for accredited organizations that meet approved international standards. The accreditation of Temos’ standards demonstrates to hospitals, clinics, patients, insurance and self-insured companies, Ministries of Health and others that Temos-accredited providers pursue Continuous Quality Improvement and adhere to international best practices. Currently, Temos’ clients serve approximately610,000 outpatients and 44,000 inpatients per month in more than 20 countries.
“Acquiring ISQua accreditation is validation of our continuing commitment to our clients and the patients they serve”, says Temos’ Founder and CEO, Dr. Claudia Mika, Vice-Chair of the Diplomatic Council's healthcare forum. “ISQua accreditation is a significant milestone for the company and its accredited providers. Temos offers its clients the highest possible standards so that they deliver excellent quality care to their patients. This achievement is a demonstration of our dedication to our current and future clients”.
With ISQua accreditation, Temos adds to its list of competitive advantages. Temos is the first international accreditation organization to create standards specifically for international patients, often referred to as medical tourists. It is the first accreditation body in Germany to achieve ISQua accreditation. It continues to innovate and elevate the requirements for accreditation to add value to its clients, their patients, and the governments, insurance companies, Embassies and Consulates and other businesses that rely upon Temos quality.
Founded in 2010, Temos accredits hospitals and clinics, dental services, IVF clinics, physical rehabilitation services, and eye care clinics as well as medical travel coordinators also referred to as facilitators or medical concierge services. With clients on five continents, the company is experiencing exciting growth and expects that ISQua accreditation will increase confidence in the marketplace and accelerate its growth.
