Application of Standard ISO 9001 regarding healthcare services
UNE 15224 for Healthcare Services is a standard for the specific quality management system of the healthcare services sector.
The requirements of this standard exhaustively incorporate those of standard ISO 9001:2015 with additional requirements, specifications and interpretations for health services. The requirements have been added whenever this was deemed relevant, and the high requirements have been clarified in accordance with the specific healthcare context. This standard includes aspects related with clinical risk management in planning, operational and control processes.
This standard identifies eleven basic quality aspects that clinical experience demonstrates, and which are adapted to the needs of healthcare organisations.
Implementing this standard allows organisations to understand the quality aspects identified in their healthcare services, processes and systems, to then specify and determine quality characteristics that must be assessed. Using the process-based focus, recommended in the standard ISO 9001:2015, said objective is achieved by the systematic management of the clinical process, with the benefit that this leads to in an efficient and effective health service, and an improvement of the health centre's image among patients, employees and society.
This standard applies to the medical-hospital sector, their healthcare organisations, regardless of their structure, organisation, owner, size or types of services provided.
