JCAHO To Provide Data Management Tool
MedSun: Newsletter #11, January 2007

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) will provide a new data management tool to all accredited hospitals by mid-year. This new tool, the Strategic Surveillance System, is designed to help identify and prioritize areas for improvement. JCAHO will provide the data management tool at no additional cost, and it will be accessible via an organization’s extranet site. The system is not a requirement for accreditation and does not require hospitals to input additional data.
