Prince Aly Khan Hospital is committed to providing quality and value for money, in a safe and ethical environment, to all its patients.
ISO provides a model for quality viewed as product/service conformance. It also establishes a foundation for further quality improvement on a continual basis. Prince Aly Khan Hospital was awarded the international certificate of ISO - 9002:1994 in December 2001. The certification was upgraded to the 9001:2000 in 2004 and 9001:2008 in 2010. The hospital is now one of the very few in the country to have achieved this distinction.
There are well-established initiatives, overseen by dedicated committees of consultants and hospital administrators, in the areas of clinical pathways, incident reporting and analysis, safety audit and infection control. These are validated through periodic internal and external audits.
Based on Government notification for cardio procedures there will be no mark up on stent prices. It will be charged to the patients on actuals. Stent charges will be capped to the maximum of Rs.30,000/- plus taxes as directed by the Government. Consumables specific for angioplasty (balloon, guide wire, catheters, thrombus aspirant devices and micro catheters) will be billed at cost price.
Some departments, like Pathology, are associated with external quality assurance and audit agencies and activities are assessed on an ongoing basis. Others, like Radiology and Blood Bank, submit themselves to periodic inspection by concerned regulatory bodies to ensure compliance with guidelines. Where mandatory requirements do not exist, services like the IVF Center voluntarily adopt guidelines of respected agencies like the Indian Council for Medical Research.
