Ambulatory Care Specialty Programs Webinar Series

Ambulatory care organizations provide a wide range of care, treatment, or services in a variety of settings, and not all of the standards included in JCI's Ambulatory Care Accreditation Standards Manual apply to every type of ambulatory care organization. Please join JCI for one or both of our upcoming webinars to learn more about two of our Ambulatory Specialty programs.

These webinars will discuss current trends and how JCI’s specialty specific, evidence-based standards, and accreditation programs can help your organization minimize risk and improve consistency in how care and services are delivered.
