Free Online 7th Edition Standards Training: Part 3 Now Available

If you missed the Part 3 webinars that are part of JCI’s Accreditation Update, be sure to log in to your JCI SkyPrep account to view the recorded sessions. Help your organization prepare for implementing the new 7th Edition Standards for Hospitals and Academic Medical Centers that take effect 1 January 2021.

Organizations preparing for reaccreditation have come to rely on JCI’s Accreditation Update education program to gain key information about what standards have changed and how those changes will impact a survey. This training integrates JCI expert faculty insights, detailed information on the standards that changed from the 6th edition, and the impact of these changes on an upcoming accreditation survey.

This 3-part training series focuses on applying the standards and is presented in a self-paced, easy-to-understand, and convenient-to-access platform. This curriculum is designed for hospitals and academic medical centers already accredited by JCI and those that are looking to become accredited by JCI.

If you haven’t registered for the 7th edition training, you still have time to take advantage of this free online content.

Joint Commission International Gift Policy Reminder

Occasionally, and especially during the holiday season, staff at accredited and certified health care organizations want to provide Joint Commission International surveyors and reviewers with gifts. Although appreciative of these kind thoughts, JCI has a gift policy that prohibits the acceptance of any gifts related to accreditation. This policy is designed to ensure the integrity of JCI’s accreditation and certification decision process, as well as, to ensure independence in business judgment.
