Purpose of Review: Radiology practices across the United States aspire to Joint Commission accreditation, the nation’s gold standard certification of effective, efficient, and safe patient care. Toward that end, radiology department leaders devote substantial effort searching the available literature to better understand the expectations of TJC and thus better prepare their organization for the review process. In this article, we review and summarize current recommendations and standards of practice in order to facilitate the self-assessment process. Summary: We present an efficient, interactive survey tool that can aid practice leaders, including radiologists and administrators, as they internally survey their own departments in preparation for The Joint Commission survey process.
