(OAK BROOK, Illinois – March 8, 2016) Joint Commission International (JCI) announced today it is in a joint venture with China Resources Healthcare Group (CRHG), marking the first international joint venture JCI has established for the purpose of training on health care quality management.
The venture establishes the Academy of Hospital Management in Beijing. The aim of the academy is to introduce Joint Commission International’s leading knowledge system of quality and patient safety – through training, education and publication services – in order to cultivate local professionals in quality management, thus improving the quality and safety in Chinese health care organizations.
“CRHG is a great partner for JCI because it has a strong presence in the Chinese health care market, with a reputation for providing quality services,” says Paula Wilson, president and chief executive officer, Joint Commission International. “They also have a strong management team focused on growth and improving China’s health care system. CRHG’s goals complement JCI’s goals in China.”
JCI, the world’s leader in health care accreditation and the author and evaluator of the most rigorous international standards in quality and patient safety, plans to bring its slate of training, education and publications to the venture. Initially JCI will also provide all faculty until Chinese trainers can be developed.
