Joint Commission Accreditation

Each independently owned and operated BrightStar Care® location is required to pursue Joint Commission accreditation. The Joint Commission is a nationally recognized healthcare quality standards organization that also accredits the nation’s best hospitals and other major health care systems. 

Quality Home Health Care

The BrightStar Care mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of those entrusted to our care. From our industry-leading employment standards to RN oversight on every Plan of Care, BrightStar Care is committed to the highest levels of quality and support. Our quality clinical processes keep clients safe in their homes and, in some cases, help prevent hospital readmissions.

When a BrightStar Care office earns The Joint Commission Gold Seal, it means that they have undergone a detailed on-site review by a Joint Commission quality expert who asserts that the location is following BrightStar Care policies and procedures, state licensure, and Joint Commission requirements.

The Joint Commission Enterprise Champion for Quality Award

This prestigious distinction is awarded to select franchisor organizations with a proven commitment to the highest level of quality and safety, and further sets BrightStar Care apart as a quality-focused care provider. BrightStar Care is one of the charter recipients of this award, the largest national home care franchise to achieve this distinction, and the only home care brand to have received the award every year since its inception in 2013. 

To keep in-home healthcare agencies performing to the highest possible standards, The Enterprise Champion for Quality award carries unique eligibility requirements. In order to receive the award, the franchisor must demonstrate that at least 95 percent of their eligible franchises are accredited and in good standing.

To meet the stringent requirements of The Joint Commission, BrightStar Care created systems to ensure continuity of care across its franchise system. Each franchisor creates templates of policies and procedures, integrates Joint Commission standards into training materials and conducts regular “mock evaluations” to help franchisees uphold standards. BrightStar Care also provides seminars, conference calls and additional resources to franchise owners throughout the year to help them remain compliant with the standards.
