Certification

In order to standardize procedures to evaluate and improve the health department in each center we have developed this certificate. The certificate is based on the study, observation and improvement of 5 areas through an audit carried out by The Apple Project. The maximum score of each area is 5 stars. Each area is divided into 5 subareas.

The fulfillment of each of these sub-areas will count as a complete star of the certain area.

Finally, in each certificate the average of compliance of all the areas and the detailed analysis of each area will be given.
