Aster Clinic Awarded with ISO 9001

For those not familiar with the name here’s a briefer on their history. 🙂

Aster Clinic is the first outpatient clinic in the Philippines to be given an ISO 9001:2015 certification from the reputable German company TUV Rheinland. This certification is the most difficult and is also the most reputable among awards given by the German company.

Milestone and Responsibility for Aster Clinic

The milestone award coincides with the 30th global anniversary of its parent company, Aster DM Healthcare LLC based in UAE.

Though it is a prestigious award it comes with a responsibility.  It requires Aster to continue to ensure that it confirms to international standards and quality patient care.  The certification and award giving body specifically looks into how a company manages potential risks, confirms with global standards and various other criteria.

Aster Clinic Boasts World-Class Standard and Technology Innovation

The clinic is just around for one year, fairly new to be honest.  However it is an extension of more than 30 years of service and experience.  Being customer-centrist is a core-value of Aster as well by continuously ensuring that quality of service is a culture within the company.

Also, the Clinic Information System (CIS) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are technological breakthroughs in the company that have been recognized for its efficiency to patient care.

The CIS and EMR are systems for recording and keeping patients’ health information like laboratory results, medical check-up appointments, and even x-ray images. The information can be tracked by patients through the internet or their smartphones, which saves time, effort and costs on the part of the patients. The doctors can quickly refer to the patients’ records.

Aster Philippines 2017 and Beyond

Meanwhile the company is planning to expand in the country and will open three more branches in February next year. Their goal is to become a chain of outpatient clinics while  looking for opportunities of building hospitals and pharmacies.

Their thrust is to promote their services to young adults as they recognize the increase of chronic or lifestyle diseases among this age group.

With an ISO 9001:2015 certification on its company wall, Aster Clinic in the Philippines is hopeful that these plans will be part of the future.
