Dutch Healthcare Inspectorate Satisfied with Yes We Can

The Dutch Healthcare Inspectorate (IGZ) has assessed Yes We Can Clinics and the results are positive.
The IGZ evaluation of Yes We Can focused on a total of 24 areas. These areas varied from employing competent and knowledgeable staff to official certification of quality. In its final report in August 2014, the IGZ concluded that Yes We Can Clinics performed well in all 24 areas.
The IGZ paid Yes We Can an inspection visit in September 2013. Such visits are always carried out without prior notification and are standard procedure for newcomers that fall under the Dutch Act on the Quality of Healthcare Institutions. The IGZ suggested several improvements based on its initial findings. These suggestions have been implemented.
Jan Willem Poot, President of the Board of Directors: “It is only right that healthcare providers and the way they function are subjected to critical assessment. The Inspectorate’s inspections are an obvious part of that process. Yes We Can Clinics is proud of the fact that we are doing well on all of the Inspectorate’s requirements. It shows yet again how we have managed to set up a professional organisation that meets all the requirements and rules for healthcare institutions in a relatively short time.” Yes We Can started in 2011.
