Supporting Health Care Organizations in all Settings

While many health care settings are similar, each health care organization is unique. That’s why supporting the needs of your individual environment is crucial.

Learn more about these specific health care settings. 

As the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care, our mission is to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders. To that extent, our leaders continuously advocate for health care organizations to ensure policies are in your best interests. Through our Washington D.C. office, we interface with federal government and key stakeholders on key health care issues.

We also collaborate with other health care associations such as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, American Hospital Association and the American Medical Association, as well as many others, to advocate for safer policies. Our Board of Commissioners includes physicians, administrators, nurses, employers, quality and innovation experts, and educators from some of these and other health care associations.

Adapting Our Protocols to Match the Current Environment

Our enhanced approach to surveys is designed to help ensure your accreditation and certification status continues and has been adapted to ensure the safety of everyone involved. While on-site surveys are the preferred and standard option, some organizations may be eligible for a virtual survey. If your organization is eligible for a virtual survey, our account executives will reach out to discuss the process.

Guiding You Forward with New Tools and Resources

At The Joint Commission, we are continuously creating tools and resources to help health care organizations deliver the highest and safest quality of care.
