“Requirements to Reduce Health Disparities from The Joint Commission”

The University of Washington in St. Louis developed the Translational Science Benefits model, which identifies 30 benefits of clinical and translational research in four domains: clinical, community, economic and policy.

The Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) of Northern Ohio’s Research Equity, Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion (READI) program focuses on the impact of research on policy through the READI Research Policy Impact series.

Policies are defined as procedural rules formally adopted and mandated by governmental agencies, or private or nonprofit organizations.

The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 22,000 healthcare organization programs in the United States, including hospitals and healthcare organizations that provide ambulatory and office-based surgery, behavioral health, home health care, laboratory, and nursing care center services.

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to CTSC of Northern Ohio for the next READI Research Policy Impact series webinar Wednesday, Feb. 28, from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

David W. Baker, executive vice president of healthcare quality evaluation and improvement at The Joint Commission, will present “Requirements to Reduce Health Disparities from The Joint Commission.”
