Published annually, the 2023 accreditation standards books for ambulatory care, behavioral health care and human services, and hospital are a perfect reference guide. Get just the requirements in these abridged books. The standards books provide key information your health care organization needs to maintain continuous standards compliance and experience operational improvement.
Our standards books are abridged versions of the manuals and contain only the standards and elements of performance requirements, a glossary, and a standards applicability grid. They have every requirement that will be assessed by a Joint Commission surveyor during survey. The chapters with accreditation process information—such as policies and procedures, initiatives, and summaries—ARE NOT INCLUDED. If you need that additional information, or standards for another accreditation program, consider purchasing a Comprehensive Accreditation Manual
for the most comprehensive accreditation information. This comprehensive information is also available in E-dition®
for all accreditation and certification programs.
