Do you want to distinguish your organisation positively as a healthcare institution in a market where more and more new providers are emerging? An HKZ Healthcare & Social Welfare certificate enables you to do so.

Do you provide multiple healthcare disciplines or do you think the current certifications are too complex? HKZ has one complete standard for all fields of healthcare and social welfare. The Healthcare & Social Welfare standard contains requirements for a quality management system. It is written in clear language and contains current themes such as client control and professional freedom. It also offers healthcare professionals more freedom and meets the demand for fewer administrative burdens, guidelines and protocols. The standard is based on the principles of ISO 9001.
