The Joint Commission (TJC) will visiting Sibley. To help everyone prepare, we will be featuring a daily tip in this space.

TJC 101. TJC accredits health care organizations and programs. TJC is dedicated to improving the quality of care in health care settings. Its major functions include developing organizational standards and performance measurement and providing education and consultation. TJC also enforces compliance with federal state and local laws as they relate to health care organizations.

Introducing the Daily Buzz

Welcome to the new publication. We’re trying a new approach in the new year to make sure you’re on top of everything at Sibley. The Daily Buzz will cover everything that TW@S did, but with some important changes based on feedback we’ve gotten in the past year.

  • Less repetition. In TW@S, we posted stories multiple times. With Daily Buzz, we’re trying something new. We’ll include reminders about events, but for the most part you’ll only see stories once.
  • Less email. You only have so much attention, and more email makes it harder to focus on the important stuff.
  • You’ll want to read it. Our stories will be punchier, tighter and easier to read.

Please review the updated guidelines and submission form.
