Additional research will be necessary.

Part I

    • The role of the Joint Commission in accrediting medical facilities

    • Which facilities can be accredited?

    • What are the goals of the Commission?

    • How do existing Joint Commission guidelines impact facilities that are not accredited by the Commission?

    • What does it mean to a facility to be accredited by the Joint Commission?

    • Is it mandatory for organizations to be accredited by the Joint Commission? If not, what impact does not having such accreditation mean in terms of reimbursement?

      Part II

  • Create a memorandum where:

    • You are the administrator of the health information department for a medium-sized facility. You have just been informed by the compliance officer that the Joint Commission will be visiting your facility and will be focusing on your department.

    • Begin the memorandum by including information you believe will be important for your personnel to know to prepare for the visit.

    • Then, anticipate possible questions that the Commission might have for you in terms of compliance.

    • How will you and your department respond to these questions? How will you manage any negative findings during the visit?

    • Finally, discuss how current noncompliance findings can be avoided in the future in this memorandum.
