Company bio:Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 22,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. The Joint Commission accredits the full spectrum of health care from physical to mental health in all settings of care from acute care, outpatient care, and long term and home care. Joint Commission accreditation is considered a “seal of approval” that tells regulators, consumers and other stakeholders that a program is committed to providing access to quality services by continually striving to improve services, assess delivery of services, and achieve excellence through education and training. The Joint Commission provides a comprehensive evaluation of a facility’s compliance with state-of-the-art standards. These standards, that are performance focused and organized around functions, are developed by experts in the field. To earn and maintain The Joint Commission’s accreditation award, an organization undergoes an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team at least every three years.
