CAHO has embarked on the concept of spreading the wave of quality and patient safety through CAHO affiliated Centres for Quality Promotion (CQP). These are the Healthcare Organizations (HCOs) which are accredited and have trained quality implementers and recognised by CAHO as CQPs. These centres reach out to nearby small and medium healthcare organizations to sensitize them to the issues of patient safety and healthcare quality. A number of hospitals have been motivated to apply and achieve accreditation because of this initiative. This helps the CQPs in building relations with HCOs in their region.
CQPs are expected to sign a memorandum of understanding with CAHO and abide by the rules and regulations. They will be permitted to display their affiliation to CAHO in their websites and at prominent places in the hospital.
The performance and conduct of the CQP will be reviewed by the advisory committee of CAHO. Independent feedback will be obtained by CAHO from the beneficiaries. The contract of CQP with CAHO will be reviewed once in two years and extended if the performance is good.
