Implement Standards to Improve Care
The Joint Commission has helped laboratory organizations across the U.S. elevate their performance through a key element of accreditation — the standards.
Learn Why Standards Matter
Joint Commission standards help you develop strategies to address the most complex issues and identified key vulnerabilities in the patient care experience. Developed with input from health care professionals, providers, consumers, and other experts, the standards ensure a comprehensive review of your patient care process.
