    • 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.
