In the global health care community, June 9 is an opportunity to recognize the pivotal role of accreditation in advancing quality in health care. Accreditation Canada (AC) has been instrumental in transforming healthcare systems and driving continuous quality improvement for a remarkable 65 years. On World Accreditation Day, we celebrate this significant milestone and reflect on the organization's impact, achievements, and commitment to patient safety and excellence in healthcare.
Accreditation Canada Diagnostics is pleased to announce the laboratory services at the Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA), a member-based, non-profit organization operating 18 licensed, acute-care, hospital-based laboratories that service clinical programs across the Champlain Region of Eastern Ontario has achieved ISO 15189 Plus™ accreditation. In choosing this option, the organization and facilities send a clear signal of commitment to quality for staff, patients, and other healthcare providers.
This January, Accreditation Canada Diagnostics celebrated 20 years of medical diagnostic accreditation. With over 300 sites accredited against ISO 15189 Plus™ requirements in Canada and internationally, the program provides facilities with the tools required to standardize processes, mitigate risk, and enable continual quality improvement, ultimately achieving competency excellence recognized around the world.
