Home Health Accreditation in Columbus OH
The Joint Commission’s Accreditation is an important distinction that is given to health care establishments in the United States after undergoing a rigorous evaluation process that includes on-site inspection. Hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes, office-based surgery centers, behavioral health treatment facilities, and providers of home care services all benefit from this accreditation process because it provides for a standard of care in the industry.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has further declared that home health agencies accredited by The Joint Commission will be “deemed” as meeting Medicare and Medicaid certification.
New research published in the October 2011 issue of the “Journal of Hospital Medicine” shows that hospitals accredited by The Joint Commission outperformed non-accredited hospitals on nationally standardized quality measures. In addition, the performance gap between Joint Commission accredited and non-accredited hospitals increased over the years of the study.
