Abstract

The article describes the nature and development of the institutional accreditation process in Italy, with reference to the law in force. This process is an administrative act whose objective is the selection of providers for the National Health Service to ensure quality control and to support quality improvement. The general approach adopted by the Italian region of Emilia Romagna to assess health care facilities is also described. Moreover, the article identifies the role of clinicians and the methods adopted to define the appropriate criteria for specialised contexts.
