MED_ID 6933: Joint Commission Tracers: Assessing Quality Patient Care Using Joint Commission Criteria

Quality patient care is the core of the academic medical center's mission, accomplished through exemplary education, research, and clinical care. In order to assure that patients receive quality care, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that health care organizations demonstrate quality through a process of accreditation, which has been delegated to The Joint Commission (TJC), an independent, non-for-profit organization. TJC promotes the continuous improvement of health care by evaluating organizations and "inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value." Failure of a health system to meet TJC requirements can result in loss of an organization's ability to participate in Medicare/Medicaid programs, which has a crippling effect on delivering patient care. Tracers are the tool TJC utilizes to evaluate the quality of patient care in an organization. During the two-week course, the student will: 1) attend tracer orientation. 2) conduct ten tracers ( approximately 1 hour each) in inpatient and invasive procedure areas. 3) conduct a literature search on tracers and quality care, and prepare 3 to 4 page synthesis. 4) complete a pre- and post- survey on the tracer process. 5) complete a one-page written reflection of the student's tracer experience at the end of each week.

Credit Hours: 2
Prerequisites: successful completion of the first two years of medical school
