Certificate Program in Healthcare Quality Management - (Online/ e-Learning)
Weekend pattern (Saturdays: 1pm – 4pm)
Program overview:

While quality is a common denominator and benchmark across products and services it acquires a new dimension and criticality in health care delivery in view of its direct impact on human lives and well being. Health care providers need to constantly measure their standards in terms of internal processes and service quality to ensure that the quality of health care delivery remains right on top and is not compromised in any way.

Maintaining high standards in healthcare delivery is not only an ethical commitment but also a hard marketplace reality, patients and their families today are far more aware of their rights, privileges, availability of healthcare solutions, costing and so on than in the past and demand value for their money.

Healthcare is increasingly viewed as a service like any other and comparative evaluation is the order of the day. The Certificate Program in Healthcare Quality Management combines the theoretic and practical aspects of quality at every level of healthcare delivery and personnel involved.
