Description

PART1

Accreditation is important to a healthcare organization, as it signifies a high level of quality approval. As noted in Module 1 Background section, there are a number of healthcare accrediting agencies. These agencies vary in the level of standards, who they accredit, accreditation period, cost, etc. While some accrediting agencies are more well known than others, they all provide some sort of benefit to healthcare organizations.

Case Assignment

For this assignment, compare and contrast six different accrediting agencies from the listings in Module 1 Background. Select three agencies from the “Top 5” accrediting agency listing and three from the second list.

In the 2-page report, complete the following:

  1. Introduction – In this section, explain the accreditation, its purpose, and importance in the healthcare field.
  2. Compare and Contrast – Use the chart below to compare and contrast the six different accrediting agencies including the following information for each:
    1. Identification information for each accrediting agency (i.e., for-profit vs. nonprofit, number of organizations accredited, year incepted, etc.).
    2. Associated cost for accreditation – this varies on the type of accreditation.

Healthcare accreditation Agencies
Healthcare is a self-assessment as well as assessment from external peer agencies that
healthcare organizations use to accurately assess their level of performance in comparison to the
set standards. The healthcare organization makes use of such accreditation to keep themselves in
line with the set standards and to find ways in which they can improve continuously towards
attaining the set goal. The accreditation is only given to a healthcare facility that commits to
providing high-quality healthcare and has demonstrated that it can meet high standards set for
patient safety. The body that accredits healthcare facilities is the joint commission. The joint
commission has the purpose of accrediting and certifying the quality healthcare facilities and
strives to improve the healthcare state for the public through collaboration with other
stakeholders (Mate, Rooney, Supachutikul & Gyani, 2014). The join commission performs its
role by evaluating healthcare facilities and motivating them to succeed in giving safe and
effective care to people. The joint commission ensures that the care provided is of the highest
quality and value.
