Third-party independent certifications are vital in healthcare.
Third-party independent certifications, like those offered by Inteleos, provides objective assurance to patients, payers, physician groups, healthcare institutions and governments that medical professionals will deliver the standard of care to which they aspire. For the medical professional seeking certification, the process can help their professional development by validating their abilities, revealing areas of strength and identifying areas for improvement. For patients and their families, third-party independent certification helps ensure an acceptable standard of care no matter where they seek it.
Our mission is to set the highest standards in healthcare.
