Preparing for the Joint Commission Certification takes a lot of effort and teamwork.
Port Orange, FL (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Advanced Medical, a travel therapy company specializing in the placement of Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Language Pathologists, proudly announces its earning of recertification for the Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission. Advanced Medical was originally designated with certification in 2009. The Commission recognizes the Advanced Medical commitment to maintaining the highest standards in Healthcare Staffing.
The Joint Commission was created in 1951, with a mission to create a set of consensus-based standards for hospitals and other medical facilities that treat patients. In October 2004, the commission expanded its evaluations to include healthcare staffing organizations. Over the last decade we have seen a large rise in the need for temporary and traveling therapists to fill the shortage for a large number of health care providers. Advanced Medical has consistently sought to meet these needs by providing highly qualified therapists for its clients. Advanced Medical has taken extensive steps to comply with these standards by managing a comprehensive quality assurance department. This process succeeds through retention of distinguished healthcare professionals, efficient emergency management procedures, and greater accountability in regards to training internal employees. In addition, Advanced Medical has used the JCAHO recommendations to maximize efficiencies, open up lines of communication, and sharpen responsiveness to clients and employees alike.
“Preparing for the Joint Commission Certification takes a lot of effort and teamwork”, stated Paige Parry, Advanced Medical Manager of Quality Assurance. “I am incredibly proud of our QA Team for this accomplishment and proud that we were able to not only pass the audit, but pass it with zero findings.”
CEO Jennifer Fuicelli added, “Once again, our QA team has proven to be the best in the business. Whether its credentialing, licensing, payroll, or human resources, this team consistently exceeds all expectations.”
The review process for the Joint Commission focuses on the ability to provide comprehensive staffing services by evaluating training, education, and placement criteria. Furthermore, they look for proficiency in the areas of leadership, human resources, performance management, and information documentation. In 2013, Advanced Medical was awarded a place on the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing companies. Recently, they have expanded their operations with an OR nursing division, as well as a school therapy division. Advanced Medical is headquartered in Port Orange, Fl, with a west coast office in Denver, Co.
