Founded in 2010, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation (TIHA) is the only worldwide independent accreditation body focused on the quality of international patient management from the medical and non-clinical perspectives. With regional offices spread around the world, the German-based Temos International serves providers and patients on six continents.
Temos International Healthcare Accreditation helps hospitals, clinics and medical travel coordinators to find their highest levels of performance to deliver top quality for the international patients and medical travelers they serve and to continuously take care of their quality. By working collaboratively, Temos International encourages innovation and avoid the “one size fits” all approach to accreditation which does not work across cultures for providers or patients. With its deep understanding of universal standards of quality and cultural differences in expectations around the patient experience, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation raises clinical standards, improve clinical and non-clinical outcomes as well as patient safety, and reduces costs for overall client satisfaction.
