The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other regulatory agencies are continually revising requirements that result in changes to The Joint Commission (TJC) standards. In addition, there are problematic areas that are commonly reviewed on TJC surveys that require additional education and implementation strategies to have a successful survey outcome.
The MHA Health Foundation webinar The Joint Commission Accreditation 2021: A Look Back & A 2022 Look Ahead is a two-part series that will review:
- Top challenging standards (CMS Conditions of Participation and TJC Standards) from the past year and a look ahead to determine future impacts on continuous accreditation and regulatory readiness.
- Patient safety issues over the past year and how they impact continuous accreditation and regulatory readiness.
- Challenging life safety issues and mitigation strategies to meet regulatory and accrediting compliance.
The webinar will be offered Jan. 13, with part one held from 8 a.m. to noon and part two scheduled from 1 to 4:30 p.m. MHA members can register for a single session for $225 or the full day for $275. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
