HANYS Hosts Webconference on DNV Accreditation Program
At members’ request, HANYS hosted a Webconference to provide information about the Det Norske Veritas Healthcare, Inc.’s (DNV) accreditation program, the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (NIAHO). This was the first in a series of Webconferences HANYS will offer members to provide an in-depth look at the various accreditation options available.
During the Webconference, Patrick Horine, Executive Vice President of Accreditation at DNV Healthcare, provided an overview of the NIAHO program and answered questions from participants. A recording of the Webconference is available for members on HANYS Web site.
In 2008, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved DNV’s NIAHO program for hospital accreditation. NIAHO conducts an annual survey and integrates ISO 9001 criteria with the Medicare Conditions of Participation into its requirements.
