Orthopedic Certification Options for ASCs

Accreditation is just the beginning. Joint Commission is uniquely positioned to help your organization excel beyond accreditation with certifications that recognize your orthopedic specialty program.

The Joint Commission offers basic and advanced certifications. When looking to achieve certification, you must meet the core requirements in the Disease-Specific Care Manual which include three main components: standards, clinical practice guidelines, and performance measurement. When achieving an advanced certification you must meet the core requirements plus additional clinically-specific requirements.

As the volume of orthopedic and spine surgeries increase in the next decade so too does your competition. Joint Commission Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement and Advanced Certification in Spine Surgery helps elevate your services with the evidence-based proof of clinical quality sought by patients and payors alike.
