DUBAI – October 11, 2018: Jehad International Medical Clinic (JIMC), a specialised medical service provider in Dubai, has achieved accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI) for the third time. This accreditation is for the medical facility's commitment to demonstrate compliance with the global organisation's quality and patient safety standards.
JIMC is an advanced clinic for the treatment of hemorrhoids and other ano-rectal diseases without conventional surgery. The clinic offers expertise by the first surgeon in the UAE to offer infrared rays and laser treatments for hemorrhoids, thus the patient can go home or to work after 10 to 15 minutes of the treatment.
The JCI is the United States-based highest gold standard for medical facility benchmarking. The JCI re-accreditation for JIMC comes in recognition of the facility's finest medical service and guaranteed patient safety standards.
Commenting on achieving the international accreditation, Dr. Jehad al Masri, managing Director of JIMC, said, “We are very honored to receive the JCI accreditation for the third time. Jehad International Medical Clinic continues to provide the highest standard of care for our patients and this re-accreditation is a testament to the work done by our team of health care professionals. Our vision is to become one of the top five specialized clinics in the UAE expanding the service through a network of satellite clinics across seven emirates.”
“We continued to raise the standards of medical practice at the clinic by ensuring the systems for auditing and benchmarking are in place to monitor, review and improve the quality of team work. Individual performance review and ongoing professional practice evaluation is carried out annually for the purpose of assessing a practitioner clinical competence and professional behavior,” he added.
“We have implemented a performance measurement mechanism for the improvement and accountability of patient safety. We have also taken effective initiatives to improve awareness of the staff on patient safety and risks, to ensure that the staff members deliver safe, high quality patient care and continue to minimize risks,” said Dr. Jehad.
According to him, clinical audits are part of the continuous quality improvement process focusing on specific issues or aspects of health care and clinical practice. It consists of measuring a clinical outcome or a process, against well-defined standards set on the principles of evidence-based medicine.
“The advantage of our treatment is that he/she needs not to take leave from work, doesn't need any kind of preparation for the treatment. The treatment is also the safest and cost-effective without any requirement for hospitalization and general anesthesia. Even elderly patients or persons suffering from diabetes, hypertension, and cardiac problems can undergo the treatment. It takes only one session of 10 to 15 minutes, so the patients can go back directly to their normal activities without a recovery period,” Dr Jehad concluded.
JIMC delivers high quality, effective and compassionate care to our patients and ensure its staff has the necessary skillsets, composition, knowledge and training to actively lead and pursue quality and excellence in healthcare.
JIMC offers diagnosis and treatment of internal and external hemorrhoids, chronic fissures, anal fistula, pilonidal sinus and excess hemorrhoidal skin tag.
