Product Description

Product Description

The 2021 Comprehensive Accreditation Manuals provide the key information your health care organization needs to achieve and maintain continuous standards compliance and experience operational improvement. Each Comprehensive Accreditation Manual describes the current accreditation process and includes all the accreditation requirements that must be met to achieve The Gold Seal of Approval®:

  • All standards effective January 1, 2021
  • Icons to help navigate documentation requirements and risk areas addressed in the Focused Standards Assessment
  • Details about The Joint Commission’s accreditation process, policies, and procedures
  • Additional chapters on required written documentation, the early survey process, Quality Check, and more

In response to customer demand, you can now choose from a hard copy or PDF manual in four accreditation settings—ambulatory care, behavioral health care and human services, home care, and hospitals. This new PDF option—available as a single-user or site license—puts the content of the manuals a simple search away! It provides you with direct digital access to the standards and elements of performance (effective January 1, 2021) you need to reference.

Click here for the abridged versions of the hospital, ambulatory care, or behavioral health care and human services manuals. A 2021 Update Service is available to keep your CAMH, CAMAC, CAMBHC, or CAMHC up to date—or to update your current manual.

Note: We do not offer hard copy or PDF manuals for all Joint Commission accreditation programs. If you are interested in accreditation standards for office-based surgery centers, they are available only electronically through the E-dition, found on your Joint Commission ConnectTM extranet site or available for purchase.
