About: Accrediting over 2,200 organizations and with over 45 years’ experience of defining best practices in the healthcare field, Joint Commission Ambulatory Care Accreditation can help develop and maintain a consistent framework of safe, quality care for group practices. The Joint Commission also offers Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) certification for practices focusing on care coordination, access to care, and how effectively a primary care clinician and interdisciplinary team work in partnership with the patient (and where applicable, their family). The PCMH requirements are incorporated into the ambulatory care on-site accreditation survey, enabling an organization to be both accredited and certified with one survey, one application.
