Updated Data Registry Requirements for Specific Advanced Disease Specific Care Certification Programs

Effective January 1, 2022, The Joint Commission has modified the data collection requirement for specific certification programs. The revised language clarifies that organizations can participate in audited registries that collect state, regional or national data. In addition, The Joint Commission developed a definition for audited registry, which will be added to the program manual’s Glossary.

Participation in an audited registry facilitates an organized approach to performance measurement and improvement, including data collection and analysis. Registries that perform audits ensure data validity and inter-rater reliability. The Joint Commission requires that information obtained from an audited registry be used by its certified organizations to compare their performance to other organizations by state, region, or nationally.
