Healthcare RM ISO 9001, ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 certification.
"We are delighted to have gained these certifications," said Healthcare RM general manager Alan Gellatly. "The entire team has contributed and worked very hard to make it happen. ISO 27001 gives our clients the confidence that we will protect them against information security risks, and is of critical importance to us. ISO 9001 certification is equally important, in that it demonstrates our commitment to providing a robust, high quality service for our clients.
"We've always taken quality management and information security very seriously, and many of the requirements for ISO 9001 and ISO 270001 were already in place. But formal certification has introduced a structured approach to our quality and security management, and also significantly improves our competitiveness. Accreditation means that standards cannot be allowed to slip and brings uniformity and traceability to our systems. It also helps highlight training requirements and enables us to support our employees and better manage our staff training programmes.
"Our clients can now be assured that our quality management and IT security are of the highest possible standard and are maintained through external audits, delivering verifiable proof that we implement best practice."
ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized set of quality management standards designed to help businesses meet the needs of their customers and stakeholders, and is one of the most respected and widely used quality management systems in the world today.
ISO 27001 is a standards system designed to bring information security under explicit management control. Certification requires that a company is formally audited and certified compliant with the standard. It systematically examines information security risks and management processes, taking into account threats and vulnerabilities and their potential impact on the organization, to ensure that controls are of the highest ongoing standard.
ISO 22301 covers the requirements for a robust business continuity management system, which allows us to minimise the risks associated with disruptions and to ensure control is maintained at all times.
