IRVING, Texas, Oct. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- HMS (NASDAQ: HMSY) has achieved certification to the ISO 9001:2015
"The ISO 9001:2015 certification is critical in providing our customers with the confidence that HMS offers the highest quality products and services that consistently meet or exceed their expectations," said Bill Lucia, chairman and CEO for HMS.
Specifically, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 is a global standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system. Achieving and maintaining this certification helps drive efficiency, repeatability and value by aligning a company's business processes with customer requirements.
"Quality is the foundation of our company and is embedded in all our products and services. Our goal is to do things right the first time, every time," said Gil Marques, senior vice president of Enterprise Operations for HMS. "Our customers benefit from our unwavering commitment to designing and deploying robust, repeatable processes, while constantly looking for opportunities to apply our best-in-class continuous improvement methodologies."
Other ISO standards look at many types of management systems such as environmental or occupational health and safety management. However, ISO 9001 is based on the idea of operational excellence. It requires an organization to define objectives and requirements, organize and document processes, and drive a culture of continuous improvement.
"HMS has demonstrated its commitment to world-class quality management by implementing and becoming certified to the ISO 9001 standard. They have joined an elite number of organizations worldwide who have achieved certification to this globally recognized quality standard," said Randy Daugharthy, director of the Registrar Program at the PRI Registrar. "We are proud to partner with HMS in this accomplishment and look forward to continued support of their objective of quality excellence."
