Making health care safer and better...
COHSASA received its third consecutive accreditation from the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) in January 2011. It is only one of 19 healthcare accrediting bodies in the world to achieve this distinction. This third accreditation means that COHSASA has been continuously accredited since 2002 and will continue to carry this prestigious status until 2014.
The ISQua accreditation evaluates the capacity of accrediting bodies to measure the performance of healthcare facilities using recognised standards in conjunction with other internationally recognised evaluative methods. This continuous international accreditation gives COHSASA credibility as a healthcare standards and monitoring body and reassures its clients, funders and health policy makers that it has sound and consistent systems and processes.
The first ISQua accreditation was valid from August 2002 until August 2006. In November 2006, COHSASA underwent its second ISQUA evaluation and was accredited a second time, valid from September 2006 until August 2010. The third accreditation award is valid until 2014.
