Global Healthcare Accreditation®
The Medical Tourism Association maintains a strategic alliance with The Global Healthcare Accreditation® Program and endorses GHA as the leading accreditation program for hospital, ambulatory centers, dental clinics or independent practitioner offices to achieve as validation of excellence and best practices when serving medical travelers or medical tourists.
GHA is an independent accrediting body focused on the Medical Travel Care Continuum. For interested organizations, GHA evaluates compliance towards competencies that ensure an organization is monitoring its overall performance in the services provided to medical travel, medical tourism or international patients and that the entire medical travel care continuum is streamlined to ensure an overall positive experience for consumers.
The rising health tourism and medical travel industries provide opportunity for many medical institutions to develop strong profit centers around services offered to traveling patients and health and wellness seekers. Information about the patient experience achieved by those selecting facilities specializing in international health services is one of the primary drivers of patient mobility. The GHAP is the global standard for best practices in the traveling patient experience.
