Joint Commission International Accreditation

Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation is an internationally accepted assessment model with the highest recognition. It conducts independent assessment audits to determine whether a set of standard requirements designed to improve the quality of care of healthcare organizations are satisfied. Today, more than 1000 health institutions in 68 countries have accredited. JCI standards address issues of patient safety under the heading of patient-based standards, the accessibility of care continuity of care, the rights of patients and their relatives, the evaluation and care of patients, anaesthesia and surgical care, medicine use, and patient and relatives education. Within the context of healthcare institution management standards, quality improvement and patient safety, prevention and control of infections, management, leadership and guidance, facility management and safety, employee quality and training, and knowledge management cases are assessed.
