Working together to improve the doctor-patient relationship
Global accreditation leader, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation (TEMOS), announces the launch of its strategic collaboration with UK-based EIDO Healthcare (EIDO) to help hospitals and clinics meet their legal and ethical obligations to patients.
These two international leaders in healthcare services will work together to assist hospitals and clinics build their knowledge of and compliance with national and international best practices concerning informed consent. EIDO is a leading expert in the legal and ethical aspects of consent, offering education and resources to its clients. The two organisations offer complimentary services to benefit patients and providers.
According to Temos’ CEO, Dr. Claudia Mika, “Temos accreditation programs require that our accredited hospitals and clinics comply with standards pertaining to informed consent. National requirements vary widely so Temos has established internationally accepted standards to protect patients while helping healthcare providers reduce risk. The right balance results in a stronger doctor-patient relationship with shared-decision making, transparency, and clear communication. Temos clients can turn to EIDO for assistance in developing or improving their existing informed consent policies and documents for better compliance with national requirements as well as to facilitate the accreditation process”.
EIDO Healthcare is a valued partner of over 60% of acute NHS hospitals and more than 80% of private hospitals in the UK. With its expertise in informed consent, EIDO helps healthcare providers reduce the risk of litigation with model consent forms that are easily understood by patients and trusted by physicians. EIDO is expanding globally and ready to work with Temos’ clients that want to improve their informed consent forms, libraries, and knowledge of this field.
We are very excited to work together with Temos International to improve informed consent standards on an international level. Temos’ hospital accreditation programmes and services align with EIDO’s mission to enrich the clinician-patient relationship by ensuring hospitals take every step to improve their quality standards around the consent process and supportive information for patients, to provide a truly informed decision-making process.Alistair Firth, CEO of EIDO Healthcare
