The International Patient Program Certification is designed to recognize organizations that provide extraordinary, best in class service to patients traveling across international borders for care.  The Commission is an independent organization dedicated to setting standards for service excellence to International Patients and elevating the level of service quality by safeguarding patient experiences in the following areas: Communication, Customer Service, Provider Interaction, Quality Care and Medical Information Exchange.
