Dear Mrs. Cathy Johnson,
Hi, my name is Jasmine Anderson and I want to tell the about the Accreditation and Certification of The Joint Commission in healthcare facilities.
Joint Commission accreditation can be earned by many types of healthcare organizations, including hospitals, doctors offices, nursing homes, office-based surgery centers, behavioral health treatmnt facilities, and providers of home care services. Joint Commission accredited organizations can also earn certification for programs devoted to chronic diseases and conditions, such as asthma, diabetes and heart failure. Providers of healthcare staffing services can also earn Joint Commission Certification.
The difference between the two is Accereditation can be earned by an entire health care organization. Certification is earned by programs or services that may be based within or associated with a healthcare organization. Both require evaluation by the Joint Commission.
The benfits of receiving care at a Joint Commission accredited or cerified organization include increased confidence in the care provided because you know the organizations is continuously working to provide the highest quality services, periodically evaluated the Joint Commission for compliance with the standards and other requirements provided with expert advice and educated from The Joint Commission about quality improvement, and able to attract qualified staff because they have more opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge.
Lastly, by undergoing the JCAHO accreditation process, will improve the quality at a healthcare facility by; strengthening community confidence in the quality and safety of care, treatment and services; providing a competitive edge in the marketplace; improving risk management and risk reduction; providing education on good practices to improve business operations; and providing professional advice and counsel, enhancing staff education....
