Joint Commission Accreditation (JCAHO) Consulting Starting at $15,000
In 2017, more and more insurance companies are requiring a Joint Commission accreditation for entry into a treatment program. This is a great way for insurance companies to ensure that their payees get the highest level of care. If your center is not accredited by either JCAHO or CARF, you could be losing clients.
The Joint Commission standards (JCAHO) are the basis from which an objective evaluation process that can help addiction treatment centers is created. This process includes measure, assess and improve performance. The JCAHO standards focus on critical patient, individual, or resident care and organization functions that are paramount in delivering safe and high quality addiction care.
