Understanding the Application Process

The Joint Commission’s application for telehealth accreditation is an important step in your journey. We use it to collect essential information about your organization, including ownership and management, volumes, and types of modalities and services provided. This data helps us determine the number of days required for your virtual survey, the composition of the survey team and the services we’ll need to review.
