Heartland Health Region has just received the results of their Accreditation Canada survey and has met the requirements of the QMentum accreditation program. Every four years, Accreditation Canada surveyors visit the organization and conduct an on-site survey. After the survey, an accreditation decision is issued and the on-going cycle of assessment and improvement continues. The region will be accredited until June 2021 provided program requirements continue to be met. Accreditation is an ongoing process of evaluating and recognizing a program or service as meeting established standards. It is a powerful tool for Quality Improvement (QI) and Heartland Health Region has shown a commitment to QI over the past number of years.
