The Joint Commission’s educational, collaborative survey will soon be available to more organizations in rural communities through the new Rural Health Clinic accreditation program coming soon in 2024.
The new Rural Health Clinic program was developed to help improve quality and safety for patients seeking preventive and specialized outpatient care. Rural health clinics will soon be able to receive accreditation from the first name in quality.
Accreditation from The Joint Commission has far reaching impacts foundational to quality of care such as enhanced staff competencies and performance improvement efforts and improved outcomes of care, treatment, and services. Accreditation provides a framework for consistency, reducing variation and risk, across the continuum for patients and staff. It connects the dots and helps prove to your stakeholders and community that you are committed to excellent quality and safe patient care.

Hear from one of our Critical Access Hospital customers on how the Joint Commission has helped them provide high-quality care to their community residents.
“Becoming accredited by The Joint Commission was the next logical step in our on-going performance improvement journey. It’s recognized by others as validation of a higher standard and provides tools and best practice benchmarks to help us sustain and elevate the quality and safety of care we provide.”
