New quality mark for medical practises

„SGS-TÜV Saar Geprüftes Praxismanagement“

New quality mark for medical practices „SGS-TÜV Saar Geprüftes Praxismanagement“
The quality proof for medical practices – independently inspected and certified by the SGS-TÜV GmbH - Ein Unternehmen der SGS-Gruppe und des TÜV Saarland e.V.

Since 2009 registered medical doctors in Germany are to implement a quality management system in their medical practices. The SGS-TÜV GmbH – Ein Unternehmen der SGS-Gruppe und des TÜV Saarland e.V. („SGS-TÜV Saar“) offers the chance to get implemented quality management systems in medical practices neutrally and independently inspected and certified in order to prove evidence of an excellent medical practice management not only to the health insurance companies but also to pa-tients. Based on European and international parameters the certification „SGS-TÜV Saar Geprüftes Praxis-management” demonstrates the high quality standard of the medical practice. Thus in the certification process the legal requirements for patient treatment, the guarantee for the surveillance of appliances as well as the qualification and the advanced training of the practice team members are checked. In doing so the audit comes up to the directives of the G-BA.

With the final certification “SGS-TÜV Saar Geprüftes Praxismanagement” medical practices are double winners. On the one hand business relationships with health insurance companies or unions can be improved, on the other hand patients can see at first sight via the SGS-TÜV Saar symbol that the medical practice went through an independent quality check. Additionally the certification provides a basis for a later certification up to the ISO 9001:2008 norm, as it already includes the essential requirements of the ISO 9001:2008.

With the nationwide operating medical practice consultant HCC Better Care GmbH („HCC”) with its registered seat in Cologne a network of more than 10.000 medical practices with already implemented quality management systems meets the expectations of the standard „SGS-TÜV Saar Geprüftes Praxismanagement“. At the same time these medical practices are double winners: They get prepared for a possible certification through a selective consulting of HCC and by using the SGS-TÜV Saar mark they acquire certainty to the outside that the introduced quality management system comes up to the re-quirements of the G-BA. First successful pilot audits have been finished beginning April. With the pos-sible certification HCC and SGS-TÜV Saar corporately pursue the establishment of a powerful mark for the quality proof of medical practices in the market.
