This intensive, hands-on program is ideal for hospitals or health systems requiring instruction in tracer techniques and how to benefit from tracer findings.

Mock Survey

The mock survey usually occurs six months prior to your accreditation survey and may serve as the final checkpoint in readiness. JCI consultants simulate the actual survey process and identify gaps in standards compliance. This intensive exercise is an ideal opportunity to engage senior leaders and prepare staff for the actual survey.

Focused Consulting

Before or after the mock survey, JCI consultants can provide pinpoint support in high-priority areas where you are struggling with compliance. A custom agenda is developed using a combination of mini-lectures, work groups, hands-on training, and focused tracers to identify practical solutions.
