Advocacy Groups Ask Congress to Make Hospital Accreditation Surveys Public

Around 50 healthcare advocacy groups across the country are asking Congress to require hospital accreditation surveys to be made publicly available, according to a Herald-Leader report.

The groups sent a letter to Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, urging him to support legislation that would make accreditation surveys public.

Private accrediting organizations, such as The Joint Commission, accredit hospitals as part of their requirements to participate in federal healthcare programs.
