National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers (NABH) and Healthcare Sector Skill Council (HSSC) have signed an MoU to skill healthcare professionals. The initiative is envisaged to provide impetus to quality training, skilling, creating placement opportunities for skilled healthcare workforce leading to enhanced quality of healthcare for patients.

Dr. Atul Kochhar, CEO, NABH, said "Our partnership with HSSC will assist us in further strengthening the entire ecosystem of patient safety and healthcare delivery. Over the years, NABH standards have brought paradigm shift in delivering healthcare services and it has helped in sensitizing heath care workers about their responsibilities. However, a country as diverse as India, growing at an unprecedented rate, requires many professionals who are skilled, continuously reskilling and upskilling. Today, our overall medical professional count per 1,000 patients is much below than WHO standards across doctors, patients and paramedics category. This partnership will also help us in exploring solutions and addressing this gap."

Ashish Jain, CEO HSSC, said the collaboration with NABH will facilitate better placement and apprenticeship opportunities for HSSC certified healthcare professionals across the country inline with vision of the Prime Minister Narendra Midi and the objective of Skill India Mission under the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship. We work closely with industry and academia to create a skills eco-system in the healthcare sector, which helps in development of skilled and work ready professionals.

Dr Devi Shetty, chairman, Healthcare Sector Skill Council said, “Skills form the most important pillar of effective healthcare delivery system across the world. HSSC - NABH partnership sets the path for recognition of skills for enhancing healthcare quality and patient safety. This would lead to an inevitable and essential shift in terms of recognition of skills, practical oriented training, and enhanced placement opportunities for certified healthcare professionals. This will have a major impact in better accessibility and early intervention in healthcare delivery in India.

Dr Alexandar Thomas, president, AHPI and chairman, HSSC Karnataka said that the push for safety and quality of healthcare that we are driving will give a big boost with the upskilling from HSSC receiving recognition from NABH. The clinical outcomes are bound to improve and healthcare delivery better with skilled health workforce trained under HSSC filling the missing gaps in caregiving.
