WHO IS JCI?
Joint Commission International (JCI) is one of the world’s leading nonprofit patient safety organizations. JCI seeks a world where every patient receives the highest quality of care possible.
The most visible way we pursue this goal is through our accreditation program. To that end, JCI regularly publishes a demanding set of standards that represent the most current thinking in patient safety and quality improvement. Health care organizations that are capable of meeting these standards must undergo a comprehensive and rigorous on-site survey conducted by JCI in order to achieve accreditation. Once accredited, organizations must continue to meet our standards and are regularly assessed through periodic re-survey. JCI is completely independent from the organizations we accredit.
JCI also works to improve the quality of care within all hospitals, not just those that are capable of meeting our accreditation standards. Our global experts regularly assist hospitals, municipal governments, and ministries of health as they pursue their own quality goals and patient care outcomes.
Founded in 1994 by The Joint Commission, JCI works with health care organizations from more than 100 countries. Today, JCI fields a well-trained team of international accreditation surveyors and consultants who work in five continents.
The mission of JCI is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care in the international community through education, advisory services, and international accreditation and certification
WHAT IS GOLDEN SEAL OF APPROVAL?
JCI accreditation is viewed as the gold standard in the global health care community. A health care organization that has met JCI’s exacting standards can proudly display the Gold Seal of Approval® as a sign of this distinctive accomplishment.
As a patient, you may see the Gold Seal on the premises of JCI-accredited organizations or in their communications. It’s a visible sign of their commitment to deliver quality care in a safe environment. The Gold Seal of Approval enhances the status of these health care organizations among patients like you and clearly sets them apart from the competition. It also receives the universal respect of other providers, businesses, government ministries, and insurance companies.
So, when you are looking for a world-class health care organization, look for the JCI Gold Seal.
