In collaboration with healthcare organizations in more than 90 countries, JCI, the leading health care accreditor in the US since 1994, sets the international standards, which enhance healthcare service levels both in terms of quality and patient safety. JCI is dedicated to improving quality of healthcare through voluntary accreditation. JCI’s uniform, high standards for patient care and safety are designed to be adaptable to local needs, thus accommodating legal, religious and cultural factors within a country.
Standards focus on the areas that most directly impact patient care. These include both clinical care and organizational management standards, such as access to care, assessment of patients, infection control, patient and family rights, and education. Standards also address facility management and safety, staff qualifications, quality improvement and patient safety, organizational governance and leadership and management of information and communications.
