The Joint Commission’s 1994 offshoot, Joint Commission International (JCI), “identifies, measures, and shares best practices in quality and patient safety with the world.” JCI provides leadership and innovative solutions to help health care organizations across all settings improve performance and outcomes. Furthermore, their expert team of professionals works with hospitals and other health care organizations to achieve peak performance in patient care. The goal? To help health care organizations help themselves.

SOME OF THAT HELP INCLUDES:

 
  • Earning accreditation and certification (Gold Seal of Approval®)
  • Providing leading education
  • Delivering evidence-based advisory services

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR QUALITY IN HEALTH CARE

No other health care accreditor has as many sets of standards approved and endorsed by the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) than JCI. This accreditation provides assurance that the standards, training, and processes JCI uses to survey the performance of health care organizations meet the highest international benchmarks for accreditation entities.

GOLD SEAL OF APPROVAL®

 Recovery Boot Camp” earned The Joint Commission’s coveted Gold Seal of Approval® in April 2017. Why? Because we met or exceeded all National Patient Safety Goals for Addiction Care, Chemical Dependency, Community Integration and Family Support. Recovery Boot Camp not only respects and admires the work performed by The Joint Commission, but we are both humbled and honored to have achieved their recognition. We’re also proud of the fact that our addiction treatment program meets and exceeds The Joint Commission’s necessarily exacting standards for accreditation. (You can view our Joint Commission accreditation history here.)
The Joint Commission is all about rigorous compliance to an exacting set of standards and practices. And no healthcare organization receives accreditation without a field check confirming compliance to said set of standards and practices.
