Editor's Note

The Joint Commission announced August 7 that the applicability of its Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation standards for telehealth organizations, which provide remote services, deploy in-person staff, and/or have equipment used between patients, is being evaluated.

In the meantime, areas of noncompliance related to infection control, equipment and utility system maintenance, and emergency management will be scored in the Leadership chapter standards.
