ISO 9001:2008 - Quality Management System Certification 
In March 2009, FMIC became the first healthcare institution in Afghanistan to receive the ISO  9001:2008 certification for implementing a Quality Management System for patient care support services. 

Following this, FMIC successfully completed three annual ISO 9001:2008 surveillance audits: in May 2010, July 2011 and March 2012. Effective implementation of the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System has enabled us to continuously identify challenges and work to improve the hospital’s performance.

FMIC is also committed to building staff capacity to maintain the hospital’s ISO compliance. The hospital supported 8 staff members in 2009 and 10 in 2010 in completing the ISO Lead Auditor Training course. FMIC now has 14 staff members who have been trained as ISO lead auditors, 11 of whom are certified lead auditors.

Joint Commission International Accreditation
FMIC is in the process of seeking the prestigious US-based Joint  Commission International (JCI) accreditation. FMIC’s Joint Commission International Accreditation Taskforce is leading this initiative, by coordinating this process and ensuring that FMIC is fully prepared for the accreditation survey.

Since 1994, the JCI has worked with healthcare organizations, ministries of health and global organizations in over 80 countries “to continuously improve healthcare for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating healthcare organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value."

The organisation provides accreditation, certification, advice and education to healthcare institutions.

FMIC is currently building staff capacity to understand and meet JCI standards in anticipation of the application. The internationally recognized JCI accreditation will be another indicator of FMIC’s leadership in Afghanistan’s healthcare sector, by indicating that the hospital consistently demonstrates a high level of medical practice, patient care and safety.
