The Joint Commission (TJC) introduced an advanced certification program for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacements (THKR) in 2016. This voluntary certification program for accredited organizations supports quality, consistency, and safety throughout the pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative phases of care. The program applies to surgeries performed in the inpatient, hospital-based outpatient, and ambulatory surgery settings.  A set of performance measures was developed to enhance the Advanced Certification of THKR program.
