HOSPITAL ACCREDITATION

Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)

This is a certification process that hospitals voluntarily seek identifying their ability to perform at nationally accepted standards. This rigorous review process helps hospitals to improve their performance and maximize their service delivery of patient care and demonstrate accountability within the ever changing healthcare environment. This information is validated by the health plan at the time of the credentialing. Our staff reviews this information at least every three years for all of our participating providers during recredentialing and through monthly reviews to update current changes. The hospital is responsible for notifying the health plan of any change in their accreditation status.

The Joint Commission evaluates the quality and safety of care for more than 18,000 health care organizations. To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by a team of Joint Commission health care professionals, at least once every three years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization's performance in areas that affect your care. Accreditation may then be awarded based on how well the organizations met Joint Commission standards. This information is verified via their website www.qualitycheck.org/consumer/searchQCR.aspx
