Kingston, Jamaica; 18 September 2018: The Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) is pleased to announce an educational webinar exclusively for the Jamaican community on the topic of healthcare accreditation given in conjunction with Medical Tourism Training, an authorized representative of Temos Worldwide.
Entitled “Accreditation for Healthcare: What, Why, Who, When, and How”, the presentation covers essential information for providers, government representatives, clinicians, and other interested individuals to learn more about what accreditation does and does not offer. The webinar that will be delivered by Elizabeth Ziemba, President of Medical Tourism Training and authorized representative of the accreditation organization Temos Worldwide, and Caribbean healthcare expert Ed Stephenson, Principal of ECS International Inc. Together Ms. Ziemba and Mr. Stephenson bring decades of experience and knowledge in healthcare, medical travel, accreditation, and business development.
“I am looking forward to sharing information about accreditation in general as well as the specific benefits of the seven distinct Temos’ accreditation programs. For example, Temos offers one type of accreditation for hospitals and clinics that treat international patients who end up in emergency rooms while on holiday. This program is specifically designed for popular tourist destinations like Jamaica to protect their public systems while ensuring that visitors who are treated in the ER return home having had excellent clinical care and an excellent patient experience”, states Ms. Ziemba. “Temos also offers different accreditation program for hospitals and clinics that intentionally seek international patients. Accreditation is not ‘one size fits all’. Different accreditation programs meet the needs of different types of providers and the patients they treat. The webinar will make these distinctions clear”.
Questions to be answered during the webinar include:
• What is accreditation? What types of accreditation programs are available?
• Why should a hospital, clinic, or facilitator/medical concierge seek accreditation?
• Who should seek accreditation?
• When is accreditation appropriate for a particular provider or individual?
• How does the accreditation process work?
The webinar is scheduled for one hour on Wednesday, September 26th beginning at 6:00 PM Jamaica local time. The presentation will be 45 minutes with 15 minutes for questions from participants. Registered participants may submit specific questions in advance to ensure that they are addressed during the webinar.
