About this webinar

Join us to learn about Dana Farber’s experience as the first organization to have a stand-alone equity survey from The Joint Commission (TJC).

Learn about the strategic and structural equity work they have built to advance equity as well as their data driven approach to address disparities. They will share how they gathered the documentation needed to represent their equity efforts for a successful Joint Commission visit and to meet the Joint Commission health care equity standards.

They will describe how they are approaching the intersection of federal and state equity requirements as they work toward The Joint Commission Health Care Equity (HCE) Certification
