Tools to Succeed - Part 5 of our Voice of the Customer Series

Read More
 
For some organizations, achieving accreditation seems like a daunting task on par with the pyramids. So it was no surprise when we surveyed ambulatory organizations for our “Voice of the Customer” series that tools and resources for achieving accreditation was a top priority. What did come as a surprise was that participants simply didn’t realize how many tools and resources The Joint Commission currently has to offer, or that they came in the formats they preferred.

Making Standards Relevant - Part 3 of our Voice of the Customer Series

Read More
 
Our customers work in ambulatory settings. Not hospital settings; not outpatient settings – ambulatory settings. So it makes sense they want standards relevant to ambulatory settings, and that’s exactly what we strive to do. When we started our “Voice of the Customer” series, we said we’d be transparent, and we meant it. That’s why I’m sharing that while relevant standards was scored as a high priority during our accreditation process, how we performed in that area did not fare as well.
