The Disease-Specific Care Certification Manual provides key information about disease-specific care programs and organizations to continuously maintain standards compliance and operational improvement. It includes the newly formatted standards and elements of performance for five key functional areas of a disease-specific care program or organization.
The manual provides an explanation of what materials to submit with your application, what documents to have ready for the reviewer to examine, and what to be prepared to discuss with the reviewer during the on-site evaluation. For organizations seeking stroke center certification, the manual also outlines the eligibility requirements for attaining certification in the Joint Commission’s Primary Stroke Center Certification Program.
In addition, the manual includes a new chapter containing the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals, certification policies and procedures, as well as a glossary of key terms.
