Hospital QMS systems

There are several hospital Quality Management Standards a hospital can adopt.

mi-CE consultancy can help hospitals  with setting up your systems. 


Below are several options described: 

  • NIAZ  accreditation:

The Netherlands Institute for Accreditation in Healthcare (NIAZ) offers a contribution to the assurance and improvement of the quality of health care, in particular by developing quality standards and by using them in the external evaluation of health care institutions and health care services, resulting in a judgment giving third parties - health care consumers, health care insurers, collaboration partners, government agencies and society in general - assurance that healthcare is being produced in an adequate and safe way.

All types of healthcare organisations, (e.g. hospitals, mental healthcare institutions, nursing and long term care homes, dialysis centres, physiotherapy practices, GP practices and private clinics) may participate in the NIAZ accreditation program. 


  • HKZ certification:

HKZ stands for Harmonisation of quality review in health care and welfare, and is a Dutch initiative of health care providers, patients/clients and insurers. Its mission is harmonisation and implementation of quality management systems and external review of such systems. To achieve this goal HKZ produces ISO 9001 compatible certification schemes for various types of health care and welfare institutions. HKZ also stimulates implementation of these schemes. 
HKZ facilitates the Council of Experts in the Health Care Sector. All certification schemes are developed under the authorisation of this council, which is acknowledged by the Dutch Board of Accreditation.
