Telehealth Certification Requirements
To be eligible for JCI Telehealth Certification, your organization must:
- Be located outside of the United States and its territories.
- Be currently operating as a health care provider with a license to provide care and treatment as a telehealth organization (if required).
- Be fully accredited by JCI or will be accredited at the time of the telehealth certification survey.
At minimum, do one of the following:
- Provide asynchronous (non-real-time communications) and synchronous (real-time interactions) care.
- Provide remote patient monitoring consisting of transmitting and storing patient data and clinical measurements from in-home or in-unit devices to patient portals or electronic health records. This data transmission may either be asynchronous or support synchronous provider visits or patient care.
