Disease-Specific Care Certification
The Joint Commission Disease-Specific Care Certification Program requires the evaluation of a clinical program across the continuum of care and is often used by hospitals to differentiate their service lines. Specific to Orthopaedics, the Joint Commission offers individual certifications for joint replacement (ankle, hip, knee and shoulder), hand surgery, hip fracture and spine surgery.
Accelero will facilitate and manage the certification process for a hospital from the beginning through to a successful conclusion–so you can realize the benefits sooner.
Facilities that obtain Joint Commission Disease-Specific Care Certification realize a consistently high quality of care that is recognized by insurers, patients and staff–providing a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Additionally, Disease-Specific Certification or a similar third-party accreditation is a pre-requisite for payer-specific designations such as Blues Distinction (Blue Cross Blue Shield) or Institutes of Quality (Aetna).
Accelero uses proprietary tools and best practices to create the most up to date processes and procedures. Hospitals that are Accelero customers already have the foundation in place to quickly become certified, further enhancing their reputation.
Once certification is obtained, Accelero can help the facility to maximize the benefits by building greater recognition and growth through:
- Distinctive brand strategy that aligns consumer values and creates differentiation.
- Targeting of consumer communities and referral sources for the greatest volume opportunity.
- Comprehensive marketing strategy and plan consisting of promotion, advertising, public relations, and digital components.
