Alignment with Hospitals
Due to our unique position as an accreditor across a variety of settings, our customers can benefit from the alignment of standards between laboratories and hospitals, specifically when an accredited hospital has a laboratory on the premises or within the enterprise. Working with JCI for both hospital and laboratory accreditation reduces the time the entire organization or enterprise spends on managing accreditation activities. Our Laboratory Accreditation Program complements the JCI Hospital Accreditation program and offers a separate distinction so patients can be confident that both facilities provide the same level of care.
JCI Laboratory Accreditation Programs
JCI Laboratory accreditation program takes a holistic and patient-centric approach that evaluates clinical and operational practices. JCI laboratory standards focus on a number of clinical areas as well as operational discipline. For example, clinical areas include Microbiology services, Clinical chemistry services, Hematology services, Immunology and serology, Histopathology, and Immunohistochemistry to name a few.
JCI's Accreditation Standards for Laboratories, 4th Edition is accredited by the International Society for Quality in Health Care External Evaluation Association (IEEA). The IEEA provides third-party external evaluation services to health and social care external evaluation organizations and standards developing bodies around the globe. IEEA accreditation provides assurance that the standards used by JCI meet the highest international benchmarks for accrediting bodies.
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has officially recognized JCI as an approved clinical laboratory accrediting body in United Arab Emirates as seen in their DHA Circular - Update of Clinical Laboratory Accreditation Policy, dated 30 March 2023.
