In response to last month's cover article, The Joint Commission issued the following statement:
"While The Joint Commission is very pleased to have a positive working relationship with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), we would not characterize our relationship as it is stated in this article (DNV Healthcare, Joint Commission emphasize differences, November 2012: Vol. 37, No. 11). CMS does not meet at The Joint Commission offices weekly, the vast majority of our meetings with CMS are by phone and our face-to-face meetings are at CMS' offices, not at The Joint Commission's Washington, D.C. office. In addition, The Joint Commission's Washington, D.C. office is not used as a base for CMS staff for any purposes."
