The Joint Commission’s robust survey process includes our unique Tracer Methodology that follows the experience of care, treatment or services for several patients through an organization’s entire health care delivery process. This allows surveyors to identify performance issues in one or more steps of the process.
Our surveyors for the Psychiatric Hospital Accreditation Program have a minimum of 20 years of mental health experience. Joint Commission surveyors are experts in their field, they have the knowledge from their experiences to share best practices with you in a collaborative manner. We feel that knowledge sharing provides you with a unique education experience.
