Content DescriptionThe Joint Commission Big Book of Tracer Questions If tracer methodology provides a pathway for the Joint Commission survey process, then tracer questions are the bricks surveyors lay along that path. With each question surveyors explore standards compliance surrounding a patient’s care experience and within the overall health care system or program. The Joint Commission Big Book of Tracer Questions is specifically designed to help you more easily and effectively conduct mock tracers in your organization, whether you are new to mock tracers or have been conducting them for years. More than 2,000 tracer questions have been collected from Joint Commission Resources tracer workbooks, articles, and software; new questions are included as well. This book, a companion to the best-selling Big Book of Checklists (2016), also includes a new mock tracer template that integrates the concepts of the SAFER™ Matrix approach. This allows you to more accurately capture and respond to the scope of noncompliance and likelihood to harm in a way that simulates an actual survey.
