JOINT COMMISSION ACCREDITATION
The Clinical Research Center (CRC) of Morehouse School of Medicine is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Accreditation means that the CRC has demonstrated compliance with organizational, participant care and research safety standards. The CRC has set standards to continuously improve performance, provide the highest quality of participant care and to ensure our participants that our research is done in a safe environment.
The CRC, in conjunction with the Joint Commission, views the survey process as part of our efforts to provide the highest quality of research/care, and not a one-time “inspection” of compliance. We use the survey opportunity to have key processes validated and welcome the recommendations for any improvement. We also initiate proactive steps for performance improvement.
