With the turn of the century, competition in most industries has gone up by several notches and each and every participant has had to innovate and maintain high standards in order to stay in the race. With evolving technology, increasing talent and more available avenues in business, there can only be so much variation in the standard of various different products and services in direct competition with each other. To set oneself apart, attention to quality and customer orientation would really need to be given utmost priority.
Healthcare is no different. The demand for quality in healthcare services has actually risen because of various market forces like insurance, medical tourism, corporate growth as well as competition. With investment set to grow in healthcare, both from the private and public sector, stakes will actually be high and all participants will want to make sure that this investment is put to the best use possible. Customers of healthcare facilities, both internal (participant doctors, clinical and non clinical staff)) and external (patients), will want to make sure that they're a part of an institution that is recognized for the quality and high standard of their services. Therefore, it is imperative that healthcare facilities strive for excellence in quality. Accreditation bodies such as NABH actually acts as a top quality assurance mechanism.
