Changes to standards for ambulatory care organizations ensure relevance

Joint Commission Requirements

Revisions have been made to certain ambulatory care standards to ensure that these accreditation requirements remain relevant. The changes, effective January 1, 2014, were made to requirements needing clarification or containing language that may not be relevant to all ambulatory settings. For example, several standards were modified to reflect how the term “discharge” might apply in various ambulatory settings. These revisions will appear in Update 2 to the Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Ambulatory Care and in the fall E-dition® update for ambulatory care organizations.
