Straight from the Heart: IMA-HBI Initiative

Thank you to Team HBI led by Dr RV Asokan for the wonderful work being done and for winning the Best Wing Award for the year 2017.

Here are some of my views about IMA HBI to be implemented by 28th December and put in the HBI agenda book.

Thanks for initiating over 768 pre-entry level NABH accreditation certification process, launching a HBI portal, bringing out 12 HBI e-Connect newsletters and a practical guide on hospital start-ups, conducting GST and insurance summits, digital Team HBI and aiming for 10,000 affiliated memberships.

Hospital Board of India may consider re-naming itself as ‘IMA Clinical Establishment” Board of India. This will give it a better branding and broader scope in working.
