EHMA Webinar: Better COVID-19 preparedness through accreditation and implementation of hospital management systems

Overview

Learn from the experience and methods that accredited hospitals have followed to adopt and ensure a safe environment for patients, as well as for their staff amidst COVID-19 crisis. The crisis has required healthcare providers to adapt to a continuously changing and demanding operational framework. During the pandemic, scientific updates and national guidelines issued by responsible authorities have been affecting the daily patient management processes. Infectious diseases prevention and screening procedures have had to be reviewed, and preparedness and response plans updated. An accredited healthcare provider where plans, regulatory systems, and protocols are standardized and already established, is familiar with the appropriate mechanisms to realize crucial adjustments at all levels of its functions. Specified roles, internal controls and standardized operational flows are among the crucial characteristics that support preparedness of a healthcare team and overall of an organization.
