Special remarks-

The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) is Australia’s leading healthcare assessment and accreditation provider. The ACHS uses a self-developed evaluation and quality improvement program, which is a framework to deliver customer-centred services. This framework is only available for members of the ACHS.

The ACHS is not only groundbreaking for the Australian and international healthcare organisations, but it is also valued and regularly addressed by organisations of other countries who want to take care of the standardisation development, accreditation systems, clinical indicators and hosting of international delegations. The ACHS, however, is not very transparent for non members of the ACHS or people without a direct relation with the ACHS.
