The Joint Commission renewed Specialists On Call's Gold Seal of Approval for Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation, the telemedicine provider announced Feb. 8.

The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval accreditation recognizes a healthcare organization's compliance with national care standards. Under The Joint Commission's accreditation program, compliance with ambulatory healthcare standards includes the provision of telemedicine services.

For the reaccreditation, The Joint Commission surveyors conducted an onsite review of Specialists On Call, evaluating the provider for compliance with ambulatory care standards related to care coordination, physician credentialing and clinical quality monitoring, among other standards.

Specialists on Call's renewed accreditation is valid until February 2021. The company became the first telemedicine organization to earn The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval in 2006 and has maintained its status each year since.
