TJC: The Joint Commission

The Joint Commission is the organization that accredits Northwestern Memorial Hospital and thousands of other healthcare organizations. The Joint Commission has developed and adopted quality measures that hospitals voluntarily collect from patients’ medical records. You may view the data on their web site.

“An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 16,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.”
