Changing the rules. With hospitals increasingly dissatisfied with the accreditation process and its high costs, the JCAHO overhauls its approach

, : Changing the rules. With hospitals increasingly dissatisfied with the accreditation process and its high costs, the JCAHO overhauls its approach. Modern Healthcare 32(40): 8-9, 16, 3

After years of criticism about the cost and relevance of its evaluations, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations unveiled a strategy promising to drastically revise the accreditation process to produce improved measurement of patient care. Russell Massaro, a Joint Commission executive, says surveyors also will be trained to connect standards with the care processes they weigh.
