Newly Revised Joint Commission International Standards

JCI standards serve as the foundation of an evaluation process that can help health care organizations measure, assess, and improve performance. As part of our goal to develop standards that promote quality and ensure patient safety, JCI regularly update its standards to reflect more current literatures, scientific evidence, data, and best practice recommendations.  

Two of the Joint Commission International Standards have recently been updated: 

Both manuals and its accompanying Survey Process Guides were published on 1 July 2023, with an effective date of 1 January 2024. These new JCI manuals have been provided to JCI-accredited and certified organizations under each respective program through their JCI Direct Connect.
