The Joint Commission PM compliance package for TMS.
Automation, dashboards, & reports to better track & increase PM compliance developed based on best practices gleaned from thousands of healthcare organizations
The Joint Commission recently published and clarified PM Compliance standards related to grace periods for non-completion. Changes to The Joint Commission accreditation processes in 2017 provide more guidelines on how organizations manage and document PM activities on equipment in their Environment of Care. EC.02.04.01 EP4, EC.02.04.03 EP2, EC.02.04.03 EP3 provide more guidance on expectations of completion rates, how grace periods affect completion rates, and how equipment that is in use or unable to be located affect an organizations completion rate.
As a result, healthcare organizations must know their PMs are 100% compliant, documented, reportable, and retrievable. We’ve made compliance easy with pre-built tools for TMS.

Work Order PM Compliance DateTJC refers to three PM dates: Start/Due Date, Done/Completed By, and Out of Compliance. The compliance date is added to ensure documentation and visibility of PM compliance—not just completion.
Active (open) Sub-statusThe recent TJC clarification specified two conditions when PMs don’t count for or against.
