The Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA) Program, established in 2016, is an independent accrediting body that seeks to improve the patient experience and excellence of care received by patients who travel for their medical care and treatment, whether within their own country or internationally. GHA’s goal is to share professional norms for medical travel and establish, through consensus, the expectations for organizations serving medical travel patients. Through its core competencies, categorized by Patient-Focused Clinical Processes, The Patient Experience, and Sustainable Business Processes, GHA Standards facilitate optimal management of the overall experience for a Medical Traveler. GHA seeks input from many stakeholders in the development of its standards, and conducts a formal field review every three years.
