Hospitals need to stay abreast of the evolving compliance issues and shifting priorities regarding Joint Commission accreditation. At this year’s conference, we will hear from Gail Weinberger, director for state relations at The Joint Commission, and an expert on its standards. She’ll provide an update on the challenging standards from 2019 and highlight some of the new ones for 2020. We will also feature a hot-topics session and conclude the program with a panel of your colleagues from recently surveyed hospitals with the goal of sharing tips and updates about current priorities.
