The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation program provides certification for more than 6,000 programs that provide home healthcare services directly or through contracted individuals or
organizations.

An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States.

Joint Commission standards address the performance of home care organizations in specific areas, and specify requirements to ensure that patient care and services are provided in a safe
manner.

“When individuals engage a home care provider, they want to be sure that provider is capable of supplying safe, quality care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, M.S., executive director of The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation program.

“Through The Joint Commission accreditation process, health experts look for an organization to deliver continuous improvement on patient safety and high-quality care,” said Honolulu Physician Dr. Stephen Lin, MD.

When you see The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal, be assured that the provider has met a higher standard for quality and safety and has been recognized as an organization “committed to quality.” That is good news for our ku¯ puna.
