Working together to support quality improvement and patient safety
Today’s health care environment continues to grow in size and complexity. As more organizations choose to consolidate services under one unified health system umbrella, Accreditation Canada offers accreditation programs and services that support the development of sustainable health systems focused on quality improvement and patient safety.
Accreditation Canada is the only organization in Canada that offers accreditation for entire health systems. System-wide accreditation supports policy making, business and service decisions and resource allocation.

Enabling Ongoing Improvement of Care
Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum program provides a system of standardization that focuses on enhancing cross-functional and disciplinary teamwork to improve staff communication, safety and well-being across the system. This results in improved efficiency, reduced operational costs and better patient and client care.
Rigorous and relevant standards that are responsive to client needs and global trends
Accreditation Canada’s standards help health systems develop and assess important topics such as governance, leadership, infection prevention and control, and medication management, which all affect the quality of services that the public receives. These standards create a strong health care structure that the public, providers and policy makers can rely on, assuring high quality health services where it matters most.
