The Joint Commission

The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits health care organizations and programs in the United States. It is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting body in medicine, aimed to ensure safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.

Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission‘s national standards for health care quality and safety, SNAP Diagnostics has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®.

Monitoring Quality and Safety

The Joint Commission encourages anyone who has concerns or complaints about the safety and quality of care to first bring those issues to the attention of the health care organization. Complaint information is used to strengthen the oversight process and to improve quality of care. Please report your concerns or complaints to Snap Diagnostics’ customer support

In addition, concerns or complaints may be submitted to The Joint Commission for review. The Joint Commission receives and processes complaints related to quality of care issues generated from facilities that receive their accreditation. Matters concerning billing, insurance, payment disputes, individual personnel or labor relations issues are not within The Joint Commission’s scope.
