Accreditation Connection, September 15, 2011

The Joint Commission has released its Annual Report on Quality and Safety, and for the first time, this report features something new: a list of 405 hospitals and critical access hospitals considered by the accrediting organization to be top performers in using evidence-based care processes tied to patient outcomes.

These hospitals represent 14% of Joint Commission accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals that report core measures data. These organizations were identified by The Joint Commission for excellence in accountability measurement reporting in 2010.
