Audit process

DNV GL’s experienced healthcare auditors deliver audit efficiency, drawing on extensive clinical and governance experience across the healthcare sector. There is no need to complete complicated self-assessment documents in the period leading up to the audit – our onsite verification method incorporates positive audit practice and saves administration costs. Information security is preserved, as confidential documents and sensitive evidence do not need to be sent off-site.

Your organisation will benefit from an impartial, independent appraisal – the verifier comprehensively analyses the interactions of the management system with practices and processes as implemented on the ward and checks against the requirements of the standard.

Competence of Auditors

All DNV GL Health Service auditors fulfil competence requirements as prescribed by the Australian Health Service Safety and Quality Accreditation (AHSSQA) Scheme and the JAS-ANZ Health Care Services Management Systems Scheme.

  • Flexible, pragmatic approach focussing on risk management and patient outcomes
  • Understanding of small, medium sized and large organisations
  • Experience in city, regional and remote locations
