It is also a member of the Accreditation Council of ISQua. NABH formulates its own standards for accreditation of all types of healthcare organisations and over the years, successive NABH standards have brought about a significant change in the approach taken by the healthcare organisations in managing and delivering safe healthcare services to the patients.

As a part of the continual quality improvement, 5th edition of hospital standards have been developed by NABH in consultation with various stakeholders in the healthcare industry. The changes brought in the new edition will help the healthcare organizations in stepwise progression to mature quality system covering the full accreditation cycle.

Aligning with SDG-3 (Good Health and Wellbeing) target 2030, the new edition of NABH standards focus on achieving health and wellbeing by strengthening treatment, access to healthcare and addressing emerging health issues and innovations. The event saw the presence of Dr RP Singh - Secretary General of QCI, Dr BK Rao - Chairman of NABH, Dr Atul Mohan Kochhar - CEO of NABH, Dr Narottam Puri - Ex-Chairman of NABH, Dr Girdhar Gyani - Ex-SG of QCI and CEO of NABH. Almost 150 NABH Assessors and Technical Committee members were invited during the launch of the new standards.
