Impressions of an IQMH Assessor on an international assessment

William Osler Health System

“Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry, trust the process.”
- Alexandra Stoddard

This quote by Alexandra Stoddard was the living embodiment of the laboratory management and staff at the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their process to accreditation was a few years in the making, and they showed great patience working through each step with guidance from the CDC team and IQMH. Their full dedication to “Trusting the process” got them to their endpoint – ISO 15189 Accreditation. Congratulations NIPH! Your hard work and dedication have paid off!

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.
