The New York Times Highlights BrightStar Care’s Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission

  1. 1. The New York Times Highlights BrightStar Care’s Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission
  2. 2. We were recently thrilled to share that BrightStar Care® had received The Joint Commission’s Enterprise Champion for Quality award for 2013.
  3. 3. The Joint Commission, a nationally recognized healthcare quality standards organization that also accredits hospitals and other health care systems, acknowledged BrightStar Care’s efforts to promote high quality health care services by its franchises through Joint Commission accreditation.
  4. 4. Recently, the New York Times highlighted why a company would look to a third party to help measure its commitment to quality care.
  5. 5. Hoping to help consumers make those choices — and to help themselves stand out in a competitive field — some home health agencies are seeking voluntary accreditation by independent organizations, Ann Carrns of the New York Times wrote.
  6. 6. BrightStar’s Chief Clinical Quality Officer Sharon Roth Maguire MS,RN, GNP-BC was featured, adding that “ we wanted some measure of quality beyond our own internal measures. It’s one thing to say we’re committed to quality, but another to demonstrate it to another third party.”
  7. 7. BrightStar is one of two large home care operators recognized by the Joint Commission for having at least 95 percent of its franchise locations accredited. The second is CareMinders, based near Atlanta. To become accredited by the Joint Commission, an agency must undergo detailed reviews and on-site visits, including direct observation of patient caregiving, every three years.
