Quality with a human touch

Your goal is the best possible patient care. 

Reaching your goal can be a struggle when you feel bogged down by the accreditation process.  That's why we provide programs that focus on how patient care is impacted - and on doing what makes sense for your organization.  

Your accreditation process should work with you, not against you. The DNV approach is designed to do this by being collaborative, adaptable, and focused on improving continually year over year.   

We call it quality with a human touch.

Meaningful surveys

For your patients, your staff, and your community

Our experts have worked in hospitals and have seen the survey process from your perspective. Their experiences have shaped our beliefs regarding hospital accreditation and certification:

  • Quality of patient care is always the priority

  • Every hospital is unique, and how they meet standards and requirements should be as well

  • An effective survey process is collaborative, educational, and transparent

  • Quality matters every single day

  • Nonconformities are an opportunity to improve, rather than a penalty

  • Collaboration builds trust
