IASO GROUP: TEMOS REACCREDITATION OF THE GROUP'S CLINICS, IASO AND IASO CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, IASO THESSALIAS, FOR QUALITY IN MEDICAL CARE
The Group's Clinics, IASO General Clinic, Gynecology-Maternity Clinic and IASO CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, as well as IASO THESSALIAS, have successfully completed their reaccreditation process for "Quality in Patient Care" by the TEMOS International Healthcare Accreditation. This reaccreditation is a continuation of the Certifications and Accreditations by TEMOS International, based in Germany, since 2013, confirming the high level of the provided services and the state-of-the-art infrastructure of the Group's Clinics. The assessments were carried out by a group of international assessors of the Agency.
This reaccreditation has an enhanced significance for IASO Group now due to the expansion of TEMOS International's accreditation standards to a wider range of functions and processes of healthcare providers, since TEMOS International's specialized accreditation programs are validated and approved by the ISQUA EEA (International Society of Quality in Healthcare, External Evaluation Association). ISQUA is an internationally-renowned and well-known Body as the "accreditor of accreditors" in health services.
The international organization TEMOS International, which is represented by the company TEMOS Hellas in our country, focuses on quality, clinical efficiency and safety in patient care, as well as the necessary clinical governance structures based on the observance of the best practices and the coverage of the requirements of regulatory and international insurance bodies.
