Disc 1

The health care industry is influenced by multiple accrediting bodies that are stakeholders in the operation of health care organizations. Periodically, the missions and roles of these accrediting bodies may be in conflict with one another. How should health care administrators navigate among the conflicting missions and roles of accreditors in order to assure that the health care organization remains accredited and has an increased opportunity for sustainability? Support your view with relevant research. Include documentation of the mission, role, and responsibilities of a specific accrediting agency (e.g., Joint Commission, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS]; the Center in Improvement in Healthcare Quality [CIHQ], etc.) as needed.
