The Joint Commission believes care processes and patient outcomes can be improved and sustained only through the gathering and analysis of performance data and by an organized and comprehensive approach to performance improvement.

Proven Practices

Proven Practices Collection was created to recognize hospitals that have successfully leveraged electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and health information technology (IT) to drive quality improvement.


To facilitate peer-to-peer sharing of proven eCQM practices, The Joint Commission sought eCQM success stories from its accredited hospitals and health systems to feature as part of the "Pioneers in Quality: Proven Practices Collection." The Joint Commission is also recognizing accredited hospitals that have assisted The Joint Commission in the evolution and utilization of eCQMs.
