(Ottawa, Canada – January 27, 2010) As part of its expanding role in the global marketplace, Accreditation Canada International has launched Qmentum International, a new accreditation product tailored to its international clients. The Qmentum International program builds on more than 50 years of Canadian accreditation expertise. This rigorous program will challenge performance-oriented, client-focused health services organizations at all levels, while recognizing their achievements at different stages of their quality journey.

Qmentum International focuses on quality improvement, patient safety, risk assessment and mitigation, performance measurement, and accountability. It provides a sustainable quality improvement approach through step-by-step implementation, based on ongoing support and capacity-building within the organization.

The program is founded on Accreditation Canada’s widely recognized national accreditation program, as well as the successes of previous international programs. Fulfilling the requirements of the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua), the development was guided and supported by the expertise of an international advisory committee, with members representing the Middle East, the Caribbean, Europe, and South America.
