CEO’s End of Year Message

By Editor on 12/19/2018

Jeff Sumner

As we approach the end of 2018, I would like to thank all of our clients, committee members, assessors, stakeholders and staff for your most valued support during the past 12 months. It has been yet another busy year for IQMH, completing multiple accreditation assessment visits, launching more than 65 proficiency testing programs and around 20 educational courses and events. As always, we are constantly pursuing our commitment to elevate our customers’ experience by providing high-quality products and excellent customer service.

In the summer, IQMH had a successful audit of our Centre for Proficiency Testing conducted by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) thereby maintaining our ISO/IEC 17043 accreditation status for our proficiency testing programs. Our Centre for Accreditation is also internationally recognized through compliance with ISO/IEC 17011 requirements and we maintain our signatory status to the mutual recognition arrangement (MRA) with the  International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) for our IS0/IEC 15189 accreditation programs. Additionally, IQMH continues to be involved with national and international working groups that review and develop quality standards in healthcare. Other notable achievements for the year include the development of a new strategic plan which will serve as a roadmap for our organization’s future growth.

As we pause to take a break for the holidays, I want to wish you all the very best for a happy and festive holiday season and I hope that, however you celebrate, you find some precious time to spend with friends and family.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to an exciting and successful 2019.
