Accreditation is a cornerstone of medical law, and ensures that healthcare organizations adhere to a common code of excellence. One organization that provides healthcare accreditation is The Joint Commission. But why is The Joint Commission important in the study of Medical Law, Ethics, and Bioethics?

Conduct some independent research, and in a 2 page Word document, describe the key functions that The Joint Commission provides to healthcare organizations as well as its purpose to the medical community in general.

Be sure to cite any outside research sources and proofread your work prior to its submission.
