Council for Health Service Accreditation in South Africa (Cohsasa)

COHSASA assists health care facilities to meet quality standards and maintain those standards once they have been achieved. Through its quality improvement methods, our organisation empowers health care professionals to measure themselves against these quality standards and monitor the improvements.

Our work shows us that strictly applied quality improvement methods can improve patient safety and quality of care by guiding interventions, monitoring progress and identifying improvements. We also identify impediments or blocks in the improvement process and develop strategies to overcome these.

COHSASA provides data on the quality of health service provision to governing authorities so that it can be used for strategic decisions. In the past 20 years over 600 facilities have entered into the COHSASA programme.
