In 2016, Terme Zreče initiated a procedure for obtaining an international accreditation document for the quality and safety of medical treatments in accordance with the AACI (American Accreditation Commission International) standards. The activities were aimed at creating a friendly, safe and orderly work environment as well as offering professional health care. In order to obtain international medical accreditation, in addition to the professional ones, some investments and organizational updates were necessary as well, which enabled the implementation of all procedures according to the precisely defined standards.
The AACI International Accreditation Standard for Health Organizations is a formal procedure for assessing and determining the way in which the health institution – in this case, the Medical Rehabilitation Center Terme Zreče ‒ meets the predetermined and public quality and safety standards.
The basic goal of standardization and acquisition of AACI accreditation is the continuous improvement of the quality and safety of patient care, which is part of our company’s strategic goals.
The benefits of the International Accreditation Standard for AACI Health Organizations are reflected in
- increasing the quality and safety of medical treatment for patients,
- increasing the quality and effectiveness of work, collaboration among the management, health and other staff in all work processes, and increasing the confidence of patients and business partners for health institutions,
- increasing the satisfaction and pride that come from work as well as the personal and professional advancement for employees.
