A Brief History: BV Certification India entered first time with 2P service / assessment in healthcare sector by developing a standard for Operation Theatres in Hospitals in year 2014. This was a initiative of Abbott Inc having a big business in Anesthesia drugs in India which has many harmful impacts on environment if they are not used in a controlled environment of OT. BV Certification India developed this standard for Abbott and had a great success in India for this by adaption by +75 leading hospitals of India. Upon its success, Abbott's another division dealing with other drugs, also approached us to develop a similar protocol and we evolved with "Pharmacy de Quality" (PDQ) standard for in house pharmacies of hospitals...Again here we have targeted to +100 hospitals to certify...

 

With above two projects, BV name is spread out in healthcare....BTW, above two projects has directly helped Abbott to increase their market share in India by developing a good relationship with top management of all such leading hospitals in India as the assessment / certification service is 100% sponsored by Abbott for their clients (hospitals)

 

A New project: By seeing the above success in market, many competitors of Abbott approached us to support them in similar projects. Glaxo SmithKline approached us to develop a standard on Hospital Infection control and Hygiene standards assessments..

 

To develop such standard, we collaborated with "Association of Health Care Service Providers of India" (AHPI) and developed a standard "Green and Clean Standard for Hospitals" a management system based standard focussing on environment, clean and hygiene controls in healthcare sector.

 

A team comprising of BV Certification specialists along with AHPI's medico specialists developed this standard.

 

We launched this standard in Delhi in presence of Honorable State minister for Health and Family Welfare Mr. Faggan Singh Kulaste and AHPI Director General Dr. Giridhar Gyani with participation of leading hospitals, investors, insurance organizations in health care sector. This event was held at Hotel Lalit, Delhi on 30th August., 2016.

 

A first contract towards the above standard subscription for +130 leading hospitals in India will be announced soon by Glaxo SmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited
