Choose the Trusted Name in Critical Access Hospital Quality
The Joint Commission accredits more critical access hospitals than any other accrediting body. Find out why.
Exclusive Business Intelligence Dashboards
Effectively and more efficiently power data-driven decisions that improve care and safety with our exclusive suite of complimentary business intelligence tools, including our most recent addition, the SAFER® Dashboard. As part of our DASH (Data Analytics for Safe Health Care) initiative, each dashboard in this growing collection conveniently assembles the key data leaders need in one place, making it easier to spot trends in performance and prioritize your improvement efforts for maximum impact.
Achieving accreditation is a visible demonstration to patients and the community that your organization provides the highest quality services. By going through a third-party evaluation, your hospital is looking to provide the best care possible, so important since critical access hospitals are frequently a huge pillar in a community.
Recognitions for Quality and Reimbursement
As the role of valued-based contracting increases, states, insurers and payors trust in Joint Commission accreditation as a quality metric to allow payment approval, network participation and contract or licensure eligibility.
Structure for Operational Excellence
Our standards form the basis of an objective evaluation process that helps critical access hospitals measure, assess and improve performance. Joint Commission standards and tracer methodology focus on important patient care and organization functions that are essential to providing safe, high quality care.
