A new ASC accreditation resource from the Joint Commission

 

The Joint Commission released a new survey readiness guide detailing what ASCs need to know before they undergo an accreditation survey.

The book covers tracer scenarios — the methods the Joint Commission use to determine accreditation — as well as resources for conducting a mock survey.

ASCs can also use the book's survey readiness sheets to determine areas of improvement within perioperative standards.

The guide covers the survey process and includes an overview of all relevant accreditation standards.
