History of the Joint Commission
Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 8,000 hospitals and home care organizations and more than 6,800 other health care organizations that provide long term care, assisted living, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services.
The Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks and other managed care entities. In addition, the Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs, primary stroke centers and health care staffing services. An independent, not for profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards setting and accrediting body in health care. Currently, only about 8% of all home care agencies in the nation have earned the right to display the “gold seal” of Joint Commission accreditation.
