Effective November 8, 2019, IMQ is not accepting accreditation applications nor accepting accreditation renewals. However, we intend to continue to provide necessary services to those facilities who have already been accredited by IMQ. For such facilities, we are working to develop a transition plan, with the relevant regulators as necessary, that would give the facilities time to transition their accreditation to an alternative accrediting body when appropriate and desirable. We are also working on addressing similar issues for the facilities that recently applied for accreditation or that are waiting to be surveyed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you think your facility is in such a situation.
IMQ has worked with The Joint Commission to facilitate an expedited process for facilities and practices looking to transition to The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is hosting two complimentary workshops on December 16 and 17, 2019, for IMQ clients to gain insight on the Joint Commission clinical standards, resources for survey readiness, the on-site survey process, government recognition updates, and post-survey steps.
