The Joint Commission (TJC) revised several components of its Hospital and Critical Access Hospital standards to align with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) measures. TJC implemented these changes based on CMS feedback on TJC's application to renew its deeming authority status.
These revisions will take effect on July 2, 2014. Read more about these revisions from TJC.
CMS approved TJC's request for continued deeming authority status on June 27, 2014.
