Jointly Accredited Providers Offer CE by and for the Healthcare Team

Four more providers have received Joint Accreditation™ : Audio-Digest Foundation, OptumHealth Education, Baystate Health, and Geisinger Health System. With these decisions, there are now 14 jointly accredited providers.

The Joint Accreditation program was launched in 2009 by the ACCME, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Joint Accreditation offers organizations the opportunity to be simultaneously accredited to provide medical, nursing, and pharmacy continuing education through a single, unified application, fee structure, set of accreditation standards, and review process. Joint Accreditation is the first and only program in the world offering this benefit to providers committed to interprofessional continuing education.
