ISO 9001:2000 Proves Effective Therapy for Outpatient QMS

In healthcare, where accreditations are critical, Sparrow Adult Outpatient Rehabilitation has "transitioned" its QMS from what was required for accreditation to a continual improvement model that meets and exceeds those accreditation requirements and is eliminating bureaucratic barriers that used to divert human and other resources from customer service. The Rehab Division may also be the first healthcare services provider to complete the PSI ISO 9001:2000 Survey. Brigette Kieft provides a look at the Rehab Division’s responses to the Survey and additional information about its implementation and registration process and changes related to its QMS, including improvements made and benefits gained.
