The Importance of the Board
Both Joint Commission and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements recognize that boards, as governing bodies, ultimately are responsible for the quality and patient safety provided at their organizations. The board is responsible for:
- Creating a culture of quality and patient safety
- Having a baseline understanding of quality and patient safety principles
- Holding medical staff accountable for quality and patient safety
- Providing resources to maintain safe, quality care, treatment and services
- Setting priorities for performance improvement activities
That’s where we come in. Our advisory services experts can help your board focus on quality and safety with confidence.
*The use of Joint Commission Resources consultative technical or advisory services is not necessary to obtain a Joint Commission Accreditation award, nor does it influence the granting of such awards.
