Customized Joint Commission Survey Preparation

Our customized Joint Commission survey preparation kicks into gear once your gap analysis or mock survey has been completed. At that point, we provide technical assistance to help you develop a detailed action plan for achieving Joint Commission survey readiness.

Customized Action Plan

We work with your team to develop a customized TJC action plan with the following components:

  • A chapter-by-chapter listing of areas of non-compliance
  • Prioritization of your high risk compliance areas
  • Action items for achieving full compliance
  • Responsible parties for action items
  • Target dates for completion of action items

The customized action plan serves as the roadmap for achieving survey success. It allows you to monitor your progress throughout the survey preparation phase. It targets the high risk compliance areas based on your setting, size, scope, and patient population. Our services are designed to meet your specific needs and help you stay ready for the Joint Commission survey.

Customized TJC Survey Preparation for High Risk Compliance Areas

Using the action plan as a roadmap, our customized TJC survey preparation tackles your high risk compliance areas. These are the areas likely to be ranked as High Risk and Widespread on your SAFER matrix. They’re also the areas likely to cause Condition level findings and result in adverse accreditation decisions and follow-up TJC surveys.
