Benefits of ISO 9001 for Healthcare Industries

  • Achieve better understanding of all processes throughout the organization and health system
  • Improve understanding of employees and medical staff’s roles and responsibilities within those processes
  • Ensure consistency of practices, protocol, policies and procedures
  • Assess the effectiveness of the hospital and health system-wide processes in achieving desired results
  • Drive improvement and/ or correction in healthcare operations
  • Improve documentation and records management
  • Improve patient safety awareness
  • Strengthen both supplier and customer confidence and relationships
  • Align Hospital-wide, Department, and Individual objectives
  • Form a foundation for improvement activities within the business/quality management system

Complying with the ISO 9001 Standard does not indicate that every product or service meets requirements, only that the quality/business management system in use is capable of meeting them.

ISO 9001 requirements describe what must be done to make up a quality/business management system, not how to set it up.

Once ISO 9001 is implemented, the very nature of the process ensures continual quality improvement, whereby problems and process variations are dealt with quickly and permanently. With periodic audits to monitor continued compliance, there is relatively little interruption in the delivery of care.

If a healthcare provider is certified to ISO 9001, any other survey process will be much simpler and less costly regarding both preparation and compliance demonstration. While ISO is not intended to replace JCAHO, HFAP, URAC, NCQA, or CAP, it does make the compliance demonstration process much easier to manage, less time consuming, and less costly. Additional benefits for blood banking organizations exist because the AABB standards are based on the same principles and concepts as the ISO 9000 Standards.
