Providing leading education
Delivering evidence-based advisory services
We understand that local needs vary and diverse cultures present unique patient care challenges. Yet, our singular focus on the highest patient care standards and results-oriented process improvement has earned the respect of health care leaders from around the world.
Our Global Reach
JCI is part of a global enterprise of dynamic, nonprofit organizations that address all dimensions of accreditation, quality care, and patient safety.
The Joint Commission
The oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care in the United States, it evaluates more than 20,000 organizations and inspires them to excel in providing safe and effective care.
Joint Commission Resources
The official educator and publisher of Joint Commission standards, JCR serves as an expert resource for performance improvement. JCI is a division of JCR.
Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare
Working to transform health care into a high-reliability industry, the Center guides its participants–leading hospitals and health systems around the globe–through analyzing breakdowns in care using its Targeted Solutions ToolsTM to document, analyze, and trigger future improvements in health care’s most critical safety and quality areas.
Founded in 1994 by The Joint Commission, JCI has touched more than 90 countries. Today, the organization helps patients in five continents and fields a well-trained team of international accreditation surveyors and consultants. JCI enjoys a 20 percent annual growth in the number of accredited organizations, just one metric of how we help health care leaders to improve quality, safety, and efficiency as a shared goal.
The mission of JCI is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care in the international community through the provision of education and advisory services and international accreditation and certification.
What is the value of a nonprofit status?
Being a nonprofit organization allows us to focus on what matters most–your organization’s needs. We direct all resources and revenue toward supporting performance improvement rather than profits. Any surplus JCI receives helps us serve you through improved services, new programs, and technology.
No other health care accreditor has as many sets of standards approved and endorsed by the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua). This accreditation provides assurance that the standards, training, and processes used by JCI to survey the performance of health care organizations meet the highest international benchmarks for accreditation entities.
