CMS grants accrediting authority to DNV Healthcare

From Modern Healthcare:

The CMS will allow Det Norske Veritas Healthcare to accredit U.S. hospitals, a move that puts the company in a small group of “deemed” organizations and could bring an increased focus on international standards, most notably ISO 9001, to hospitals across the country.

…DNV Healthcare is expected to certify healthcare organizations as compliant with ISO 9001 quality management standards, as well as the Medicare conditions of participation.

The company’s authority to accredit hospitals will run through September 26, 2012.
