Joint Commission's Pathology Reporting Requirements Consistent with the Commission on Cancer
Abstract:Starting July 1, 2011, The Joint Commission survey process for laboratories will verify implementation of synoptic reporting formats in histopathology, thereby complementing the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer accreditation process. Because laboratories with a CoC-accredited cancer program already follow the CoC's voluntary standards, this does not represent a change in The Joint Commission’s compliance requirements.
