Chances are if your searching has found this article, your healthcare staffing agency made the decision to become JC certified. Now your goal is to maximize the effectiveness of this experience. Here are the top ten reasons that make hiring a consultant specializing in Joint Commission Health Care Staffing Services Certification a wise investment.
1. Streamlining the Process
Many organizations find it overwhelming and extremely time consuming to prepare for Joint Commission Certification. A consultant streamlines and simplifies the process so you can focus on growing your business.
2. Frees Up Key Personnel
Organizations that prepare for JC certification on their own, often pull key employees from revenue generating activities for 6-12 months depending on the size of the organization. Using a consultant is more cost effective and utilizes less internal resources, allowing your employees to focus on revenue generating activities.
3. Faster Certification
Working with a consultant decreases time to survey readiness and you can enjoy with benefits of Joint Commission certification even sooner.
4. Objective Assessment of Compliance
Have you heard the statement that is difficult to see the trees from the forest? Using a consultant allows for an objective assessment of your organization to determine compliance with standards and to identify opportunities for improvement.
5. Eliminates Misinterpretation of Standards
A consultant brings expertise to the process, so there will be no misinterpretation of the standards. It is important to verify that your consultant has worked in the healthcare staffing industry so they truly understand your business as well as the JC standards.
6. Expert Experience for Guidance
A consultant brings proven techniques, processes and tools. Why try to recreate the wheel?
7. Support from Start to Gold Seal
A consultant provides you ongoing support throughout the entire Joint Commission process. In addition to onsite consultation, your consultant is just a phone call away to provide support, guidance and reassurance.
8. Insider Info on JC Reviews
A consultant has first hand experience with the JC reviewers by participating in multiple JC reviews. A consultant can prepare you specifically what the reviewers will be looking for and the types of questions they will ask.
9. Trial Run Survey
A consultant will perform a Mock Survey, using the same review tools used by the Joint Commission reviewers. It allows the organization to get a feel for what the actual review will be like. It also allows the organization to make any last minute changes as needed to achieve compliance with the standards.
10. Guaranteed Certification
Clearly no explanation is needed – your organization will achieve JC Certification – no if’s, ands, or buts about it!
