Recent Advances in Quality Management (RAQM) Series Programme Background
 
Academy of Hospital Administration (AHA), the Professional Body of Hospital Administrators has been on the forefront of training providers for Quality Management Systems in Healthcare through its various capacity building programmes.
 
After its Flagship programme ‘PGC QM&AHO in 2007’, AHA has launched many other quality management programmes including QM for Nursing Practitioners & NQAS Certificate Programme. Many practicing & aspiring quality practitioners and healthcare organizers and providers have benefitted from these programmes. 
 
Quality management is an evolving concept. The quality requirements keep on changing and the quality standards also evolve over time. This demands that those who practice quality as well as those who are in the field of healthcare provision need to be updated as per these changing requirements.
 
AHA understands its responsibility in updating the knowledge and skill of the quality practitioners and healthcare providers. Towards fulfilling this responsibility AHA has come up with Recent Advances in Quality Management (RAQM) series. 
 
This programme series is beneficial to all healthcare professionals, healthcare providers, quality practitioners as well for those candidates who have already done QM&AHO PGC Programme, NQAS certificate programme & QM in Nursing practices programme from AHA.  Programme is focused on upgrading the knowledge of the participants so that they can lead/ assist any healthcare quality assurance related project in healthcare facilities. This also makes them more complete healthcare quality practitioners.

Through the course content & interactive training sessions, participants will acquire the essential knowledge & skills to manage the evolving quality needs of a healthcare organization in the current dynamic environment of hospitals. 
 
There have been major changes that have been incorporated in the NABH Standards for hospitals. These include not only the changes in the Quality Standards and Objective elements but also in the scoring methodology and compliance assessment and finally in the accreditation decisions.
