Study Suggests That JCI Accreditation Can Help Organizations Save Money
A recently completed study that was published in the East Mediterranean Health Journal recorded the positive financial impact Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation and standards had on hospitals in Jordan.
The study, which spanned four years, was performed in two JCI accredited hospitals and two non-accredited hospitals. Of the five measures selected for the study, three demonstrated a positive impact on the accredited hospitals’ finances. Reduction in return to intensive care unit (ICU) within 24 hours of ICU discharge, reduction in staff turnover, and completeness of medical records each showed statistically significant effects on the accredited organizations. Over the course of three years, the hospitals saved a total of US $593,000.
