6 benefits of pursuing The Joint Commission accreditation

The Joint Commission accreditation helps organizations prove their high quality of care to patients, potential hires and payers, according to The Joint Commission's Mike Dye, senior associate director of business development in the ambulatory care program.

Here are six business cases for pursuing accreditation from the April webinar Mr. Dye hosted.

1. The accreditation survey process helps organizations build structure and standardize internal practices to ensure high-quality care and patient safety.

2. ASC leaders can accompany surveyors through the on-site process, providing the opportunity to identify successes and areas for improvement.

3. While on-site, surveyors share their observations and/or best practices they've seen at other organizations.

4. Achieving Joint Commission accreditation helps increase possibilities in the ambulatory care market. It's a pathway to contracts, referrals and additional certifications, such as the advanced total hip and total knee replacement certification.

5. Accreditation helps with recruitment, as qualified staff members seek out accredited facilities.

6. The Joint Commission provides expedited application processing and survey scheduling for ASCs seeking Medicare deemed status. Accreditation can also lead to recognition from payers/insurers, who may direct patients to the accredited organization.
