Assessing Readiness for Accreditation

Primary-Care-250How do you know when you are ready for JCI Primary Care Center accreditation? This is an important question and one that should not be considered lightly. Accreditation is not a one-time accomplishment; it is not “passing an examination.” JCI accreditation is an ongoing commitment to a process that demands time, financial resources, and follow-through, but will ultimately help your primary care to improve continuously over time.


JCI accredits small, specialty organizations, as well as large, more complex organizations.  Survey fees are based on the size and complexity of the health care organization, which determine the size of the survey team and the number of days necessary to conduct the survey.
