What’s in a Name? Find Out Why We’ve Changed Ours.

August 21, 2017

“I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I’ve never been able to believe it. I don’t believe a rose WOULD be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage.”
– L.M Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.

Like Anne of Green Gables, we believe that names have power; which is why we’ve changed our name from Health Audit NZ to Q-Audit.

Well, names contain our identity – who we are. But they also reflect where we are going. It was time for our name to promulgate who we have become and raise the bar at the same time.

Like our clients, we’ve been on a journey since we first started operating as Health Audit NZ in 1993. During that time we’ve established a reputation for quality auditing and quality certification services to the medical, health, support and care services.

We’re proud of the authority that we have built within the industry, as well as the fact that we’ve embraced technology. In an industry that is historically conservative when it comes to digital innovation, we’ve led the way.

Ensuring quality is also about being adaptive, which is why we are always looking at how we can improve our services and streamline our processes, to improve the standard of every organisation we work with.

So, it’s simple. The ‘Q’ in ‘Q-Audit’ stands for ‘Quality’.

A dedication to quality weaves through everything we do. Approval from us purveys quality – we give businesses the peace of mind that their systems are in excellent working order.

No doubt your eagle eye has noted that the ‘Q’ in the new logo stands above –AUDIT. That represents its importance to our core mission. Our designers have used a strong, bold typeface that has the authority that we do. Blue represents the trust and loyalty we have earned from our customers.

We’re excited about the future. Our new name has put a spring in our step – we hope you’ll walk with us as we continue to work with the New Zealand healthcare sector to ensure quality.
