JCI Accreditation

Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation

JCI Accreditation is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards in patient safety and quality of health care services. JCI Accreditation is based on the principle of continual improvement and customer satisfaction. It can be applied to any type of health care organization, regardless of size, industry, or sector.

JCI Accreditation is a voluntary process that involves an external audit by a JCI survey team at least every three years. The JCI survey team verifies that the organization has implemented and maintained a quality management system that conforms to the JCI standards. The JCI standards are developed by an international team of experts and are recognized by the International Society for Quality in Health Care External Evaluation Association (IEEA) as an international accreditation[^1^][1]. The benefits of JCI Accreditation include improved patient satisfaction, increased efficiency and effectiveness, reduced costs and risks, enhanced reputation and competitiveness, and compliance with legal and contractual obligations.
