Disease Specific Certification
The Joint Commission introduced its Disease-Specific Care Certification Program in 2002, and since then other accrediting organizations have followed suit. The pathway to Disease-Specific Care Certification provides a framework for hospitals to demonstrate a level of excellence in care across the continuum for conditions such as stroke care, diabetes, joint replacement, spinal surgery and congestive heart failure.
