Health, Social Services and Health Tourism

Dynamism in healthcare systems as far as certifications, assessments, audits, trainings and evidencing competence are concerned can hardly be outdone in view of the development of sector specific standards and regulations. It is not only increasingly requirements relating to quality and its evidencing that are being placed on the different institutions. Compliance also is demanded in legal and statutory requirements. Quality Austria GmbH does not only offer its customers a large range of certifications, assessments and trainings in recognized courses but also the expert knowledge of federally recognized specialists. This helps to guarantee that our customers are not only always provided with the latest knowledge but can also create sustainable value themselves.

As could be foreseen for a long time, healthcare systems are undergoing a change that is partly driven by the new technological, demographic, legal, statutory, economic, ecological and social developments of knowledge. All the levels of organizations active in healthcare (legal, statutory, political, strategic and operational levels) are increasingly taking dynamism into consideration by aiming at ensuring that it also is in healthcare that services provided and relevant performance are made transparent and traceable. This dynamism is not only driven by international developments but doubtlessly also by legislation (Act about Responsibility of Associations, Act about Medical Products, Act about Doctors, …) and media. What nobody would have thought to be imaginable already is reality: an action filed against a hospital because of negligent homicide. This means the topic of “legal compliance” is increasingly becoming important. For it is, above all, in private institutions that existential risks might be imminent. In addition, however, there already is competitive struggle for “customers” because the reforms of healthcare systems necessitate maintenance of Departments, among other things due to the growing number of patients or operations.
