Certification Process

Certification requirements for joint replacement programs address three areas:
  • Compliance with consensus-based national standards.
  • Effective and consistent use of appropriate, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the hip, knee or shoulder replacement patient population.
  • Collection and analysis of a minimum of four performance measures specific to the hip, knee or shoulder replacement patient population (a minimum of two performance measures must be clinical in nature.)
Joint replacement programs that successfully demonstrate compliance in all three areas are awarded certification for a two-year period. At the end of the first year, the organization is required to attest to its continued compliance with standards and provide evidence of performance improvement activities. To maintain certification, the cycle repeats with an on-site review conducted every two years and a bi-annual submission of an acceptable assessment of compliance by the organization.

Benefits of Certification

Joint replacement programs seek certification because it:
  • Demonstrates commitment to a higher standard of service
  • Provides a framework for organizational structure and management
  • Provides a competitive edge in the marketplace
  • Enhances staff recruitment and development
  • Is recognized by insurers and other third parties.
