The Joint Commission will now be officially called...

From Health Decisions:

Beginning in January, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations--for decades commonly referred to as “The Joint Commission”--plans to change its name to “The Joint Commission.”

A December 11 memo from JCAHO President Dennis O’Leary, MD, to all JCAHO employees reveals the name change plans. “This change is simply intended make our name more memorable than the current 18-syllable Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations,” reads O’Leary’s memo, which was obtained by Briefings on JCAHO, a newsletter published by HCPro Inc., which also publishes HealthLeaders.
