The Commission on Cancer has signed a formal agreement with the JCAHO, establishing  complementary recognition for each agency’s accreditation program in an effort to enhance the availability of health care and accreditation information provided to consumers. Recognition will be acknowledged by having the CoC Approval designation displayed within the JCAHO’s web-based Hospital Quality Reports for those facilities accredited by JCAHO.   

JCAHO accreditation will be displayed within the CoC’s “Find an Approved Cancer Program Near You” web-based search function.  A set of discussion points is being developed by the CoC to be used by the JCAHO surveyors when focusing on the provision of high quality cancer care.
