Attention Get With The Guidelines®-HF Awardees: The Joint Commission has approved the set of standardized performance measures for the AHA/TJC Disease-Specific Care Advanced Certification in Heart Failure (ACHF). These measures have been developed to better evaluate the care provided to heart failure (HF) patients with an emphasis on the transition of care (specifically, from inpatient to outpatient).  The finalized sets of performance measures are now published on TJC’s web site.

The new measures will be collected for heart failure patients with discharge dates on or after January 1, 2014.
