Incorporating Joint Commission OPPE into a Hospital-Wide Quality Improvement Program



The Joint Commission and other accrediting bodies and payers have established more stringent guidelines for the ongoing evaluation of the professional practice quality of each medical staff member, across all departments and services. Called Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation, the program features six core areas measuring a practitioner's clinical and behavioral competence.
