Sumantri A, Ariyanti F


ISO 9001: 2008, is an internationally recognized certification system categorized under the ISO 9000 family. This system sets out the requirements of quality management, with a strong client focus. It helps to ensure the end-users receive consistent, good quality services, which in turn reflect on the development and improvement of the services provided by the organization. However, although the number of public health centre implementing these standards is on the increase, there is little conclusive evidence demonstrating the process actually improves the quality of care offered and  to date there have been no studies to investigate the continuous quality improvement of the ISO certification at public health center in Indonesia.
