JCAHO Launches Redesigned Web Site
MedSun: Newsletter #2, March 2006
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has introduced its revamped Web site, which features one-click navigation, increased accessibility, and new sections that focus on specific audiences. Consumers and health care organizations will now be able to tap into the latest information on health care quality and safety. Approximately 150,000 visitors each month use the site to research more than 15,000 accredited hospitals, home health agencies, health care clinics, and other health care organizations through JCAHO’s Quality Check mechanism. Extensive feedback from users of the site helped the agency in enhancing and improving its Web presence as a user-friendly destination.
