Global accreditation provider, Temos Worldwide, has announced the opening of its newest regional office in New Delhi, India. The aim is to expand access to its International External Evaluation Association (IEEA) accredited standards.
Temos’ new office is led by Mr. Rajesh Mehta, Founder and CEO of India-based medical travel facilitator, Uniworld Healthcare Private Limited. Prior to this, he was International Business Head for the Murugappa Group, Senior Category Head with Reliance Industries Limited, and Country Head (India) for Verita Healthcare Group, Singapore.
“India is an important medical tourism destination. By providing our services through our new regional office, Temos’ globally recognized international accreditation programs offer more options to hospitals and clinics seeking to improve their clinical quality, business metrics, and patient experience”, says Temos CEO, Dr Claudia Mika. “Our innovative, affordable, and customer-friendly approach to improving healthcare services can build increased worldwide recognition for Indian quality in healthcare. Temos is very pleased to have Mr. Mehta support hospitals and clinics in India on their accreditation journey”.
IEEA-accredited programs aim to improve the patient experience for domestic and international patients. This is supported by Temos’ reputation as an innovator in setting standards for quality, patient safety, risk management, and the patient experience.
Temos was the first international accreditation organisation to include standards specifically for international patient management. It was also the first to deliver a program to combat COVID-19 to reduce the risk of transmission.
Founded in 2010, the organisation accredits hospitals, ambulatory care/outpatient services, cosmetic surgery clinics, dental services, IVF clinics, physical rehabilitation services, eye care clinics, and community pharmacies as well as medical travel facilitators. It has clients and regional offices on five continents.
