The purpose of the international organisation’s visit was to assess the centre’s quality improvement performance

Officers from the accredited international organization SafeCare visited our hospital at Foso (Ghana) for an assessment on our performance in quality improvement.

This exercise, that was conducted from 20th-21st October ended with an exit interview where their observations were made known to the facility leaders.

It was an important event because of the relevance of the organisation and also because of the philosophy of our centre which focuses on offering the best services and techniques for the care of patients.

What is the purpose of SafeCare?

SafeCare is a formal initiative between PharmAccess, the Joint Commission International (JCI) and the Council for Health Services Accreditation of Southern Africa (COHSASA). This coalition aims to develop robust, safe and realistic clinical standards for low- and middle-income countries.

MISSION

SafeCare empowers the progress of healthcare providers in emerging countries by helping them measure, monitor and improve their services through innovative solutions.

The main objectives are to provide measures to improve patient safety challenges and quality requirements and to provide data and knowledge on facility quality.

In order to achieve these objectives and to define the situation in which each centre finds itself, it has a ranking in which different parameters are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, from an initial problematic situation to an ideal one.
