The Joint Commission outlined the benefits of ambulatory care accreditation.

Here are the key details to know:

1. Competitive edge. Accreditation is a visible demonstration to the community that an organization is dedicated to providing the highest quality care. Accreditation also sets an ASC apart from other facilities offering the same procedures.

2. Recognition from insurers, associations and other third parties. Many payers, regulatory agencies and managed care contractors require accreditation from The Joint Commission for certification, licensure and reimbursement.

3. Assists in improvement efforts. Accreditation helps organizations improve quality and standardizes care processes.

4. Improving staff education. Because the accreditation process is designed to be educational, The Joint Commission surveyors offer suggestions and strategies to improve day to day operations at an ASC.
