Created in 2008, the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare aims to solve health care’s most critical safety and quality problems. The Center’s participants–some of the nation’s leading hospitals and health systems – use a systematic approach to analyze specific breakdowns in care and discover their underlying causes to develop targeted solutions that solve these complex problems. In keeping with its objective to transform health care into a high reliability industry, The Joint Commission shares these proven effective solutions with the nearly 21,000 health care organizations it accredits and certifies. Hospitals have made significant advances in quality–even better results are now achievable. Hospitals and The Joint Commission are working together to improve systems and processes of care.
