ISO Training : International Organisation for Standardization
The International Organization for Standardization, known as ISO, is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. International Standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, can be a useful tool to add credibility, by demonstrating that your product or service meets the expectations of your customers. The certificate is issued from a premium certification body and it can be verified from its accreditation body website. Every certificate comes with a unique certification number.
International Standards are developed by ISO technical committees (TC) and subcommittees (SC) by a process with six steps :
Stage 1: Proposal stage
Stage 2: Preparatory stage
Stage 3: Committee stage
Stage 4: Enquiry stage
Stage 5: Approval stage
Stage 6: Publication stage
As business becomes ever more competitive, ISO 9001 Certification can be a cost - effective means to demonstrate to customers that quality assurance is of paramount importance to your organisation. A recent study of various organisations with ISO 9001 Certification revealed an increase in turnover, sales, customer satisfaction and savings.
ICD-10-AM Certification –
The HIMAA Introductory ICD-10-AM, ACHI and ACS clinical coding course has been designed for students who have no prior coding knowledge or who have limited coding experience and begins with the basics of disease and procedure classification and coding from medical record information.
