DNV Healthcare Advances in Bid to Accredit Hospitals
Date:3/24/2008

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Accepts as Complete DNV's

Application for Hospital Deeming Authority

HOUSTON, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has informed DNV Healthcare that its application to deem hospitals in compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation has been accepted as complete and ready for formal review.

If approved, DNV stands to become the first new option for hospital accreditation in over 40 years. Information about DNV's application and the need for alternative accreditation are available at http://www.newaccreditation.com.

According to the notification from CMS, the formal review period has commenced on March 12, 2008, and a 30-day public comment period will begin in late April with publication of this CMS notice in the Federal Register.

"This is a turning point, not just for us, but for the many hospitals seeking a new approach," says Yehuda Dror, President of DNV Healthcare. "Healthcare spending is over two trillion dollars a year, yet preventable medical errors are still on the rise. Hospitals don't need more pressure to improve, they need the tools that will help them change the system from within. If we can innovate the accreditation process, we give hospitals the key to systemic change."

DNV has developed the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations(SM) program (NIAHO(SM)) which blends ISO 9001 quality management with Medicare's Conditions of Participation for Hospitals. The result is a more streamlined accreditation process that captures "best practices" and turns them into standard practices across the organization, leading to sustainable, continual improvement. Healthcare providers implementing NIAHO(SM) have begun to realize significant measurable improvement in patient safety, health outcomes and financial performance.
