    • 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?
