Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA) was established with the goal of enhancing the patient experience for medical travelers across the entire Medical Travel Care Continuum. GHA’s Certification for Excellence in Medical Travel Patient Experience helps organizations to strengthen and sustain a robust medical travel program and recognize its excellence in compliance with best practices in patient experience and business practices impacting the medical travel patient.
The value for hospitals and clinics that achieve certification includes:
- Implementing best practices as a foundation for an efficient and productive medical travel program;
- Validating the quality and performance of the medical travel program regarding patient experience and sustainable business practices;
- Increasing visibility to international patients and buyers;
- Enhancing the patient experience across the organization’s Medical Travel Care Continuum;
- Demonstrating commitment to excellence in the management and delivery of medical travel services.
Certification for Excellence in Medical Travel Patient Experience is a good choice for organizations that already have or may not have a clinical/patient safety accreditation or certification.
Ms. Renée-Marie Stephano, GHA’s Interim Chief Executive Officer stated, “The patient experience is a key factor of a healthcare provider’s ability to attract and retain patients. When patients trust providers, they develop a stronger sense of loyalty to the organization. GHA’s Certification for Excellence in Medical Travel Patient Experience assists organizations in building patient trust, by demonstrating that the organization has implemented procedures and protocols that meet the unique needs and expectations of traveling patients. We congratulate VitalLife Scientific Wellness Center, one of the region’s premier wellness centers, for achieving GHA Certification for Excellence and for its commitment to supporting the needs of medical and wellness tourism patients.”
