Licensure Process where the state grants a health office the right to practice medicine and provide services to the public.
Accreditation Process where very influential accrediting bodies, mainly the JC (joint commission) give their seal of approval to a health care provider. Gaining this approval means you have met the JC's standards and you met the COPs

Credentialing When medical staff offices review a provider's history, their qualifications, certifications, proof of their residencies/fellowships. It is similar to a background check for doctors.
Risk Management Trying to prevent situations that could harm anyone associated with the hospital; patients, doctors, or even visitors. This practice is greatly improved by using incident reporting methods.
