Why Healthcare Standards Matter

Globally recognized healthcare standards help health systems to assess and then develop solutions for complex topics like leadership, governance, infection prevention and control, and medication management. These all affect the quality of services that the public receives.

These standards help to create a strong health care structure that the policy makers, providers, and public can rely on for their own safety. This assures that high quality health services reach those where it matters the most.


What do Global Standards help health services providers do?

  • Find efficiencies
  • Identify best practices, leading to reliable and higher quality health services for the public in local jurisdictions
  • Improve health and safety in the workplace
  • Determine what type of care should be offered and identify gaps in their current systems
  • Assess and improve upon their quality of health services

What do Global Standards help the public do?

  • Put a human face to health services; patients can see their local health organizations actively working to improve care
  • Have confidence that the health services they are receiving are standardized; meaning that they are verified, safe, and reliable
  • Actively provide feedback on current health services deliverability and help identify gaps
  • Know what level of quality to ask for from their service providers

Global health standards are also useful for governments, providing policy makers with access to the best evidence and expertise available, which is the key to having a smooth decision-making process. Another advantage of global health standards is the ability for healthcare organizations to benchmark against one another.

In order to have complete global healthcare standards, there would likely need to be some standardization in healthcare on the business side.

With Healthcare professionals, healthcare systems, and healthcare organizations in a near-constant state of evolution, we can see why the development of our healthcare standards becomes increasingly important as we go along.

Because of healthcare standards we can share the strain of development in a larger world that is changing at break-neck pace. Nearly everyone involved in medicine is highly trained and many are highly specialized with a vow to provide quality care.

Quality Health Care means doing the right things the first time. A quality system invokes the standards that the organization monitors to guide and regulate all of its activities that create a quality service. It is important to differentiate between quality of health and quality of health care. The delivery and analysis are what bridge this all together.

If we focus on quality improvements in every facet of healthcare along with giving people better treatment, then we as a society can continue to move forward with these incredible advancements in medicine.
