Saudi insurer to collaborate with GHA accredited providers

Saudi Enaya Cooperative Insurance Company has announced that it will pursue contracts with selected healthcare providers accredited by the Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA) programme.

The GHA programme is an independent accrediting body that seeks to improve the patient experience and excellence of care received by those who travel for their treatment. It conducts a thorough review of the provider’s global patient services programme, or the entity within an organisation that serves the medical travel patient.

“We are always looking for opportunities to offer our members better value through expanded access to high-quality physicians, facilities and care experience by utilising robust care insurance products,” said Dr Essam Masoud, Saudi Enaya's Chief Medical Officer. “Including GHA accredited organisations in our network is good news for our members, as GHA validates that healthcare providers have policies and procedures in place designed to facilitate a high-quality patient experience across the entire care continuum including those important touch points that occur before the patient arrives at the hospital and after he or she is discharged. This collaboration with GHA aligns well with our ultimate goal to enhance the patient experience, improve health outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs.”
