What is NABH?

National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers was founded in 2005 and is a component board of “Quality Council of India (QCI)”. NABH along with QCI has curated a set of standards, for all the hospitals and healthcare providers in the country. The NABH standards provide a framework for quality support, quality authority and quality development while also concentrating on the safety of the patients and quality of healthcare.

Introduction to NABH Services

NABH is short for National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health Care Providers. The objective to establish this board was to set a benchmark of standards, as well as to improve the quality of health care services in India. NABH also aims to provide easy access to healthcare for all classes of the population through various methodologies and tools.

NABH registration, therefore, implies that the healthcare organization is accessible and also capable to improve its efficiency. And that the quality and operational systems are well-defined and implemented within the facility.

NABH is authorized to operate health accreditation programs for the healthcare departments. India currently has approximately 500 hospitals in various phases of NABH certifications and more than 50 already registered.
