Thank you to everyone who attended our May webinar “Optimize Outcomes by Assessing Your Engagement and Equity Efforts.”
As you begin implementing changes within your healthcare organization to meet the new health equity requirements from The Joint Commission (TJC) and CMS, please remember:
● Benefits of compliance with the TJC and CMS rules include improved patient outcomes and satisfaction, better quality of care, staff engagement and retention, reputation, and lower costs.
● Consequences of noncompliance include loss of accreditation, reduced reimbursement, regulatory penalties, patient harm, lawsuits, damage to reputation, and loss of market share.
With that in mind, Dr. Knitasha Washington and the ATW Health Solutions team would like to share some resources you may find beneficial.
