Topic - Joint Commission

The Joint Commission (TJC), formerly the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), is a United States-based not-for-profit organization.[http://www.faqs.org/tax-exempt/IL/Joint-Commission-On-Accreditation-Of-Healthcare-Organizations.html). ] The Joint Commission accredits over 19,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. A majority of state governments have come to recognize Joint Commission accreditation as a condition of licensure and the receipt of Medicaid reimbursement. Surveys (inspections) typically follow a triennial cycle, with findings made available to the public in an accreditation quality report on the Quality Check Web site. - Source: Wikipedia
