As Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar said, “Life should be great rather than long,” the quality of life and everything in our lives matter more than the quantity. Quality of our standard of living, health, fitness, profession, knowledge, and the businesses we establish matters the most than anything else.

Further, quality is not a fixed state. It has to be augmented with each passing moment and maintained as always. It could be surmised in the axiom, “Quality Yesterday, No Longer Quality Today.”

This philosophy is at the core of Acute Quality Consultants (AQC) – a leading provider of specialized quality consulting services to the healthcare and industry sectors.
