UOSSM announced in the Annual Medical Conference in Gaziantep, the acquisition of the ISO 9001 Certification, in the presence of Turkish government officials, and representatives of UOSSM member organizations.
ISO 9001 Is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. Despite the global importance and prestige of the ISO Certification, that was not the goal of UOSSM . The goal of the ISO Certification was to raise UOSSM’s standards and to provide the best quality care, following the international standards of excellence to all UOSSM beneficiaries.
Every time the organization grows, staff responsibilities grow as well. For this reason, a strategic plan, in sync with all rules and regulations to ensure quality assurance of all services is utterly important.
In 2014, two years after the establishment of UOSSM, the UOSSM staff in Syria and Turkey attended the first training workshop about the importance of ISO standards implementation. It was then that UOSSM made the decision to acquire the ISO 9001 certification.
ISO standards are implemented worldwide to unify standards, with the goal of improving quality production of services by organizations. The process of acquiring this certification involves overseeing all projects and activities, with detailed records, in all departments of the organization.
UOSSM is so proud of this accomplishment which will indeed help us to save lives, and build hope, with the highest quality standards.
