With this recognition, Borgess becomes the first hospital in Michigan to be certified for Advanced Heart Failure. Only 12 other hospitals in the entire country have this certification.
Joint Commission disease-specific certification is based on:
- Effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines
- Compliance with consensus-based national standards
- An organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities
Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. Joint Commission accreditation is a requirement for Medicare reimbursement.
For Joint Commission advanced level certification, programs must meet the requirements for disease-specific certification plus additional, clinically-specific requirements and expectations.
