Accreditation Station: The value of your IQMH accreditation

By Editor on 9/1/2016

Setting international standards for excellence: ISO 15189

ISO 15189 is the standard of choice for the accreditation of medical diagnostic facilities. It requires them to standardize processes and procedures for both quality system and technical requirements, set up a no-blame environment that drives continual improvement, establish an interface with users and ensure the reliability and accuracy of test results.

Accreditation Station: Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Program Update

By Editor on 8/30/2016

In the July 2016 issue of Elevate, our “Accreditation Station” column made reference to the planned IQMH diagnostic imaging (DI) accreditation program being ‘the first of its kind in Canada’. What we meant is that this program will be the first in Canada to be based on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 15189:2012 Medical laboratories – Requirements for quality and competence standard, whose clauses will be supported by other reference sources that represent the generally accepted principles of good practice in Canada for Bone Densitometry, CT Scanning, General Radiography, Interventional, Mammography, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, PET and Ultrasound.
