Enhanced certification alliance expands connection between Joint Commission and American Heart Association

Accreditation Connection, October 7, 2011

In order to help organizations provide even better care through Certified Primary Stroke Centers and Heart Failure Programs across the country, The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association (AHA)/American Stroke Association (ASA) are enhancing their existing alliance.

The intent is to combine the scientific expertise provided by the AHA and ASA with the evaluation experience The Joint Commission brings to the table. According to an official press release, beginning February 1, 2012, these centers and programs will be able to use designated seals from The Joint Commission and American Heart Association/American Stroke Association to signify that they are providing the “next generation of stroke or heart failure care.”
