CompleteCare Health Network has once again received the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) Accreditation.
To receive the accreditation, CompleteCare Health Network undertook an unannounced on-site survey administered by a team from the Joint Commission. This team has experience in ambulatory health care; they evaluated compliance with ambulatory care standards related to a variety of areas, including coordination of care, infection prevention and control, management of medications, and patient education and training.
“We are pleased that we have achieved our goal to continue Joint Commission Accreditation,” says J. Curtis Edwards, president and CEO of CompleteCare Health Network. “We work to provide our patients with a high-level of quality care and the Joint Commission offers ways to continuously improve our systems of care. We appreciate their value and expertise as we grow.”
The Joint Commission’s PCMH Certification was established in 2011 and are awarded for a three-year period. The certification encourages accredited organizations to ensure patients receive timely and appropriate treatment.
Additionally, PCHM Certification gives organizations with the means to improve patient access to care. It also supports these organizations to focus on educating patients and showing them how to self-manage their illness or condition.
CompleteCare has been accredited by the Joint Commission for Ambulatory Care since 1998 and as a Primary Care Medical Home since 2013.
