Description:
I am delighted to present to you the Irish Health Services Accreditation Board's (IHSAB) Annual Report for 2004. The IHSAB leads and facilitates the development, assurance and continuous Improvement of quality structures in tile Irish health services. Our goal Is a safe and Quality-driven, person-centred journey through the health system. In light of this strong mandate. I was delighted 10 be appointed Chairperson of the IHSAB in the first quarter of 2004. 2004 saw many developments, including the appointment of Ms. Raisin Boland as the Board's first Chief Executive. Ms Boland's experience in accreditation and in the health services as a whole has ensured that the IHSAB has continued 10 deliver on its remit. There is demonstrable evidence that the health services have embraced the concept of accreditation. By the end of 2004, 80% of an acute care hospitals had voluntarily applied to participate in the scheme and this exceeded our projected target of 60% for the year's end. Crucially, five hospitals that already underwent the survey process have reapplied to participate in the scheme and this reflects a significant level of buy-in from the acute care community. The evolution of accreditation continues and the past year has seen many new initiatives and some significant milestones reached. We are particularly satisfied to be validated for the Acute Care Accreditation Scheme's (ACAS) 2nd Edition Standards by the International Accreditation Programme (lAP). In addition to this, the IHSAB will undergo organisational accreditallon with the lAP in the second half of 2005. Its the ACAS is three years in operation, the expansion of the scheme is timely. To this end, a phased approach to new scheme developments will be undertaken, commencing in late 2005 with Palliative Care and Residential Services for Older People. This is a time of major change within the health services and the IHSAB is a part of this reform programme. In 2006, its functions will be Integrated into the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA). This development will provide the opportunity to expand our role and we look forward to affecting this prospect. The Board is very aware of the rote that the IHSAB executive has played in the successful implementation of accreditation and it acknowledges their dedication and professionalism, which has ensured the achievement of so much in such a short timeframe.
