Have you heard?
The Joint Commission has extended its practitioner appointment requirement from “not to exceed two years” to “not to exceed three years.”
The new timeframe is intended to better align with the standard practice of evaluating licensed practitioners every three years.
The new change is effective immediately unless laws and regulations require a shorter period. It applies to accreditation programs for hospitals, ambulatory health care, behavioral health care and human services, critical access hospitals, nursing care centers, and office-based surgery.
This change will enable MSPs to perform continuous monitoring and quality assessment, as well as help reduce duplicative credentialing/recredentialing processes – but it will involve adjustments for all parties.
