Create differentiation.

The Joint Commission’s well-recognized and highly respected Gold Seal of Approval® will set your organization apart from competitors. It demonstrates to patients/the population you serve, other providers, pharmacists, and payors that you are committed to providing the utmost quality and safest virtual care ─ and that your organization strives not only to do things the right way, but to achieve excellence.

Promote alignment with other accredited organizations across the continuum of care.

When you select an accreditor who has a long-standing history of accrediting and certifying organizations across the continuum of care, your partner organizations and patients/population you serve will have the confidence that you are delivering the same quality of care as an in-person encounter.
