Accreditation is a process in which an entity, separate and distinct from the health care organization, usually non-governmental organization, assesses a health care organization to determine if it meets a set of standards requirements designed to improve quality of care. Accreditation is usually voluntary. Accreditation standards are usually regarded as optimal and achievable. Accreditation provides a visible commitment by an organization to improve the quality of patient care, to ensure a safe environment and to continually work to reduce risks to patients and staff. Accreditation has gained worldwide attention as an effective quality evaluation and management tool. Source: QHA Trent.

At Medicare4U, we aim to make healthcare more transparent through information.

When patients compare Healthbase physicians to doctors in the US, patients find that the qualifications are often surprisingly similar. In fact, many patients do not realize that almost a quarter of physicians practicing in the US are foreign trained. According to an October 2005 article from the New England Journal, almost 22% of MDs practicing in the United States in 2004 were non-Americans trained in foreign medical schools.

We encourage our patients to discuss their plans with their primary physician. While most physicians are familiar with the concept of medical tourism, it may be necessary for you to help educate them further on the proposition and share some of our educational materials.
