Public Information Policy

September 30, 2016

The Joint Commission is committed to making relevant and accurate information about health care organizations available to interested parties.  Information regarding a health care organization’s quality and safety can help organizations improve their services.  This information may also help educate consumers and health care purchasers in making informed choices about health care.  At the same time, it is important that confidentiality of certain information be maintained to encourage candor in the accreditation and certification process.  The Joint Commission’s primary vehicle for providing public information is Quality Check®.
