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.

Expert to Expert Series

The Joint Commission’s Expert to Expert Webinar Series provides a deep-dive into measure intent, logic, and other clinical/technical aspects of electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) to assist hospitals and health systems in their efforts to improve eCQM data use for quality improvement. This series incorporates expertise from Joint Commission and other key stakeholders. 


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.
