The Cuban health system begins to take into account international quality standards, assured to Prensa Latina the representative of the Pan American and World Health Organization on the island, Cristian Morales.
On the delivery of the Certificate of Quality Accreditation to the Central Clinic Cira Garcia, in this capital, Morales stated that this is a very important process at the time of showing the world the advances of the Antilles nation in the health sector.
It is always very important to have accredited institutions with certain processes that guarantee patients a recognized level of quality. For a center like Cira García – which provides services to foreign patients – is vital because it allows it to position itself in the field of other foreign hospitals that offer the same type of treatments, explained the PAHO/WHO director in Cuba.
Nevertheless, the economist pointed out that the challenge is to keep the job: after evaluations and accreditation, it is necessary to understand that not because this condition has been received this will be maintained in time.
You have to undergo a reevaluation every three years, so I call to maintain the levels of care, efficiency and warmth with which provides services to patients, he stressed.
Morales also said that Cira García is now a reference for the other institutions of the national health system that will begin to accredit themselves in the coming months and the coming year.
Now the country can compare its guidelines, clinical protocols and other processes with those developed in other nations, so as to learn, improve and perfect, always based on optimal care to patients, concluded Morales.
