Virtual Health - CAN/HSO 83001:2018 (E)
Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Accreditation Canada are providing complimentary access to a selection of resources to fight COVID-19.
The standard specifies the requirements for organizations that receive and/or deliver Virtual Health services, ensuring they address quality and safety and put patients at the centre of what they do.
The standard provides:
- Organizations that receive and/or deliver Virtual Health services with guidance on how to ensure quality and safety in their institutional and virtual contexts
- Policy makers with a blueprint for the requirements to designate organizations that receive and/or deliver Virtual Health services in their jurisdictions
- External assessment bodies with measurable requirements to include in assessment programs
This standard is intended to be used in conjunction with other related standards that apply to hospitals and specialized hospitals. It is not intended to be used in isolation.
This standard applies to all health service organizations that receive and/or deliver Virtual Health, regardless of the model (i.e., centralized/decentralized; hospital, regional, provincial/territorial).
