Core Measure Solution Exchange®

A Quality Improvement Tool

January 29, 2016

Core Measure Solution ExchangeAs a benefit for accredited hospitals, The Joint Commission has developed the Core Measure Solution Exchange® which promotes the sharing of performance measurement success stories between accredited hospitals.

The Core Measure Solution Exchange:

  • Facilitates the sharing of peer-to-peer success stories as to how accredited hospitals attained excellent performance on specific measures;

  • Allows organizations to share the details associated with their pathways to performance measure success; and

  • Assists other accredited hospitals with their efforts to achieve a similar success story.

Performance success stories (aka solutions) can be found for a variety of different measurement types:

  • Chart-based measures *currently used in the hospital accreditation program and specific certification programs

  • Electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) *currently used in the hospital accreditation program

  • Certification-only measures *currently used in specific certification programs

To date, nearly 265 solutions have been posted by hospitals that have dramatically improved and sustained their performance.   If you would like to submit a solution, click on the link below to access the Exchange. 

The Exchange is available to Joint Commission accredited and certified organizations on the secure Joint Commission Connect Extranet.


Once you’re on the site, you will be able to:

  • Submit a solution

  • Search for solutions to improve measure performance

  • Post comments and participate in discussions about the solutions

  • Rate the usefulness and transferability of the solutions

  • Post adapted versions of the solutions based upon your own experience

  • Be notified via e-mail when new measure solutions are posted

We hope that you find the tool to be useful. We welcome your feedback and comments, which can be submitted directly through the Exchange. You may also send questions and comments to
