QUALITY POLICY

At Aster DM Healthcare, we subscribe to the view that quality is the outcome of all activities that take place within the organization. Total Quality Management (TQM), a discipline and philosophy of management which institutionalizes planned and continuous improvement is instituted in our group. We also place emphasis on the focus of improvements being on systems and processes rather than on the individual; also that all function and employees have to participate in the improvement process.
