Setting the stage for worldwide quality improvement efforts, the Joint Commission International (JCI) has published the first comprehensive set of international quality standards for hospitals.

The standards will serve as a basis for JCI accreditation of individual health care facilities, as well as for establishing accreditation programs in nations outside the United States. The standards can guide international health care organizations in preparing for a JCI survey, seeking or maintaining accreditation, and improving overall performance.
