Joint Commission International (JCI) Launches New Laboratory Accreditation Program
Joint Commission International (JCI) has launched a new addition to its Laboratory Accreditation Program based on ISO 15189:2022 requirements. This accreditation program, available to laboratories located outside of the United States and its territories, recognizes organizations committed to providing a patient-centric experience and improving patient safety and quality of care.
This evaluation uniquely combines ISO 15189:2022 requirements and JCI’s rigorous, evidence-based, patient-centric standards, setting JCI apart from other lab accreditation programs.
