As large number of hospitals face challenges and difficulties in implementing all the Accreditation Standards, NABH has developed Pre Accreditation Entry Level Certification standards, in consultation with various stake holders in the country, as a stepping stone for enhancing the quality of patient care and safety. The aim is to introduce quality and accreditation to the HCOs as their first step towards awareness and capacity building.
Once Pre Accreditation Entry Level Certification is achieved, the HCO can then prepare and move to the next stage – Progressive Level and finally to Full Accreditation status. This methodology provides a step by step and staged approach, which is practical for the HCOs.
