Global accreditation leader, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation has announced a strategic collaboration with International Assistance Group (IAG) providing access for IAG’s partners to the Temos accredited hospitals and clinics.
The two organisations will work together to offer high-quality clinical and patient experience services to IAG’s partners whenever access to trusted healthcare providers is needed. Temos-accredited partners will be added to IAG’s service database to accept referrals to their hospitals and clinics.
According to Temos’ CEO, Dr. Claudia Mika, “Temos works hard on behalf of its accredited hospitals and clinics as well as their patients to add value to the members of the Temos family. With this agreement with IAG, Temos accredited partners can receive appropriate referrals from the IAG partner assistance companies for travellers who need medical care. It is an honour for Temos to be selected by IAG as a trusted supplier and for our accredited partners to be included in their network for healthcare providers”.
IAG is the world’s largest alliance of more than 140 independently owned assistance companies, services providers, and correspondents dedicated to cross-border collaboration on behalf of travellers and insurers. IAG’s 123 million-plus end-users, including business and leisure travellers as well as expatriates and corporations, will have access to Temos-accredited hospitals and clinics through the IAG Partner network
“Assistance companies like IAG are increasingly looking to high-calibre accreditation services such as Temos to ensure that their partners receive excellent clinical care as well as a quality patient experience. Temos is the first international accreditation organisation to create standards specifically for international patients, including tourists and business travellers with medical emergencies but also medical tourists, while its comprehensive accreditation programs benefit all patients, states Dr. Mika. “Our accredited providers brings these credentials to each patient they serve. We look forward to a long and successful collaboration with IAG”.
Founded in 2010, Temos accredits hospitals and clinics, dental services, IVF clinics, physical rehabilitation services, and eye care clinics as well as medical travel coordinators (“facilitators”) or medical concierge services.
