Accreditation is an approach used by many health care and social services organizations. At Accreditation Canada International (ACI), the program is designed to improve client outcomes and health system performance. It helps the entire organization work together to create a focus on safety and quality.
QMENTUM International Accreditation Program is built on the philosophy of quality improvement, knowledge transfer, and capacity building. It engages a wide range of staff members, from leadership and professionals to managers and front line personnel, having a profound impact throughout the organization.
Dasman Diabetes Institute has completed two full cycles to date. Each ACI QMENTUM cycle is completed within a 3 year period. The Institute uses the program to identify areas of strength and areas for further improvement based on the results.
In November 2015, DDI completed the second cycle for ACI and was awarded Platinum Level with Conditions.
Platinum level is awarded when the Institute demonstrates that it has built on the elements of quality & safety and emphasized key elements of: client centered care, consistency in the delivery of services through standardized processes, and client and employee decision making involvement.
