First HK medical centre awarded internationally recognised ambulatory healthcare accreditation
The medical centre is the first in Hong Kong to be accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) for patient safety and quality care.
Established in 2005, asia medical specialists (AMS) is a team of over 20 doctors, specialising in orthopaedics, surgery and internal medicine, with clinics in prime locations in Central and Tsimshatsui.
The first medical centre in Hong Kong to attain Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, AMS has passed a rigorous evaluation and is committed to continuous compliance with JCI's standards in patient safety, assessment and care, medication management, quality improvement, infection prevention and control, governance and leadership, facility management, and information management.
JCI is the international service of the Joint Commission, the oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare in the United States. The Joint Commission accredits over 20,000 US facilities, including world-renowned institutions such as the Mayo Clinic. JCI was established in 1994 and is the world's largest healthcare accrediting body. Their accreditation is considered the gold standard in healthcare globally.
The accreditation is re-assessed every three years.
An important aspect of the JCI accreditation is patient education. JCI demands that patients be given options and sufficient information to make an informed choice. AMS patients also benefit from the doctors' use of clinical guidelines, transparent pricing; and receiving copies of their medical reports.
AMS is held in high regard locally as well as regionally, with patients coming from China and East Asia.
"The JCI accreditation took a big investment and commitment from AMS, but we all feel it is important to benchmark against recognised international standards, and show that we can measure up to the world's best medical practices." said Dr Jason Brockwell, Medical Director of AMS.
"I was thrilled by the enthusiasm of our team. They have genuine passion to provide the best possible care to patients." said Medical Director Dr James Kong.download PDF
