The conference is designed to recognize the incredible challenge that health care organizations and front-line workers face with the COVID-19 crisis in the ambulatory care setting. We’ll offer tips, strategies and potential solutions to be successful in maintaining and achieving ambulatory care accreditation with The Joint Commission.

2. Understand how The Joint Commission approach towards patient safety and quality can support your organization today. Hear how we're navigating these unprecedented times behind the scenes by providing assistance and recovery strategies for current and prospective ambulatory care customers. 

3. Hear from our clinical and engineer experts on important topics.
Subject matter experts will discuss:

  • utilization of telehealth during COVID-19 and The Joint Commission’s standards and survey process to evaluate its quality and safety
