The Canadian Healthcare Council is an organization that specializes in certification of healthcare institutions and professionals. The standards for hospitals and clinics are included in Canadian federal and provincial regulations. Together with the international standards and best practices provide organizations with the information they need to pursue or maintain patient safety and high performance.
The Canadian Healthcare Council specializes in certification of doctors and healthcare providers. The requirements for certification of professionals are the international standards and current Canadian government statement for medical tourism.
Our governance and directors have over 20 years of experience in developing and implementing many quality accreditation programs in Canada and around the world.
Their work has been in more than 500 organizations in Canada and more than 100 organizations around the world.
Our program is our competitive advantage. Our program was created by Canadian healthcare professionals not general engineers. General quality dimensions cannot constitute the great majority of a program used in hospitals and clinics. A program has to be written and reviewed by healthcare professionals who work and see what hospitals and clinics need. We have technical people who understand the difference between a certification and accreditation. You are not going to find repetitive and archaic requirements in our program.
Client organizations see a return of their investment because you pay what a hospital and clinic in Canada is charged for our programs. The price you pay is not based on what competitors charge you outside of their countries but what Canadian hospitals and clinics pay here in Canada. International Accreditation bodies are blamed for milking poor countries to bring high revenues to North-America but this should not be the rule. The price is set based on what we charge in Canada to facilities and professionals without adding one or two ceros. The price for a visit could be around 14,000 CAN$ for three evaluators for a large and complex hospital.
Our objective is that professionals and institutions have a return of their investment. As a difference with others, we take the steps to send you patients to your organization. Patients do not know nor have a reason to know about accreditation and certification companies. We have the experience to take the right steps to send you patients to your offices. We give you a superior business position than any other body after you finish our program.
A competitive advantage is our surveyors. As the difference with others, they currently work for healthcare organizations. Healthcare organizations deserve to be visited by active healthcare professionals.
CANADIAN HEALTHCARE COUNCIL
It is important to have proper preparation. Organizations deserve proper preparation.
The national voice for an efficient health-care system.
Our purpose. Benefit health-care organizations for the first time from a Canadian program not only endorsed but completely and exclusively developed by a team of doctors, nurses, technicians, and healthcare professionals.
In 2004, the World Health Organization launched the World Alliance for Patient Safety. International Patient Safety Goals promoted by the World Health Organization have helped Canadian organizations and professionals to address specific evidence based areas of concern. The World Health Organization has promoted the Six Patient Safety Goals around the world as the most problematic areas and with the most evidence. Universities across Canada address such areas of concern in their courses for healthcare providers. Despite the multiple organizations in Canada and United States authorized to write healthcare standards, they all recognize the World Health Organization's top areas of risk for an accreditation award: Goal 1: Identify patients correctly. Goal 2: Improve communication. Goal 3: Improve the safety of high-alert medications. Goal 4: Ensure safe surgery. Goal 5: Reduce the risk of health care-associated infections. Goal 6: Reduce the risk of patient harm resulting from falls.
What sets us apart:
We believe public and private health-care organizations can coexist to improve the lives of millions of Canadians who need options now.
The Canadian Healthcare Council accredits only the safest hospitals and health-care organizations around the globe.
* Other very recommended Canadian accreditation organizations: Carf Canada, Canadian Accreditation Council, Canadian Centre for Accreditation, CSA Group Testing & Certification, Bureau de normalisation du Quebec, Canadian General Standards Board, QMI-SAI Canada, LabTest certification, and Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

Universal health-care matters, so does good quality, proper funding, and an impartial evaluation.
Registered in five countries, the Canadian Healthcare Council and its partners are part of an association of Canadian organizations that specializes in certification of healthcare organizations and professionals.
The Canadian Healthcare Council provides organizations with the information they need to pursue and maintain high standards of patient safety, based on World Health Organization and international standards, and best practices.
The Canadian Healthcare Council specializes in certification of doctors and health-care providers outside of Canada. In Canada, it was ratified the UNESCO Convention on the Recognition of Studies, Diplomas and Degrees concerning Higher Education in the States belonging to the Europe Region. We provide information and referral services to individuals and organizations on the recognition of academic and occupational credentials for working and studying in Canada and abroad. The requirements for certification of professionals are up to current international and Canadian regulations.
What we are changing:
Universal health-care matters and should be evaluated properly to not have overworked and underpaid health-care professionals.
Canadians deserve no more long wait times and options in Canada or abroad. Hospitals and clinics should start having impartial evaluations of their services.
Canada has benefited for many years from a program written by professionals with no healthcare background. It is time the standards are written only by health-care professionals.
Evidence based behind thousands of standards should not be "a good number of clients or one successful case as example" but a real book of evidence available immediately after a client request.
Evidence behind standards should be a visible document. Canadian evaluators’ state "If it is not written, it does not exist" but the same rule should apply to their accreditation bodies.
Organizations should pay a proper amount for an evaluation based on the number of days and how much surveyors charge.
Because all Canadian surveyors charge only a couple of hundreds of dollars per day, the price cannot reach hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Accreditation organizations should be the most efficient in the use of their resources in order to charge a proper price in Canada or internationally.
The unique programs of the Canadian Healthcare Council are our competitive advantage. All of our programs are designed, created, and reviewed by Canadian healthcare professionals and international consultants who currently work in the field and can effectively identify the needs of hospitals and clinics.
The Canadian Healthcare Council has streamlined the process of accreditation in order to eliminate archaic and repetitive requirements.
Client organizations see returns on their investments because they pay the going rate for hospitals and clinics in Canada, rather than the price of competitors outside the country. For a large hospital, the rate for 3 evaluators per cycle is generally around CAN$18,000.
Finally, the Canadian Healthcare Council supports clients by referring new patients to their organizations. Rather than simply adding your organization’s name to a website, we take proactive steps to get patients into your offices.
