About International Library of Measures

Joint Commission International standards specify that organizations must collect data as part of their quality improvement system.  To comply with these standards, the organization’s leadership selects well-defined, evidence-based measures that are applicable to the organization’s patient populations and services.

The Joint Commission International Library of Measures provides uniform, precise specifications for the collection of data standardized to permit comparison over time within a hospital and for comparisons among hospitals. Organizations are encouraged, but not required, to use the Library measures.
