Joint Commission updates clinician evaluation timeframes

The Joint Commission has updated its timeline for how often it will evaluate licensed practitioners' ability to provide care from two years to three.

The revised requirement is effective immediately and aims to better align with the standard practice of evaluating licensed practitioners every three years. Some exceptions will be made when laws and regulations require a shorter period. 

The update applies to various accreditation programs, including those for hospitals, critical access hospitals and nursing care centers.
