High Reliability: The Gold Standard in Health Care

For more than 60 years, The Joint Commission has inspired hospitals and health care organizations to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality by earning and maintaining The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™, a symbol of quality that is recognized nationwide and reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting demanding performance standards.

At the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare, our mission to transform health care into a high reliability industry by developing effective solutions to health care’s most critical safety and quality problems continues the quest for achieving the gold standard in health care. Why? Because, along with our participating hospitals and organizations, we believe high reliability in health care means consistent excellence in quality and safety for every patient, every time.

High Reliability in Health Care:

  • Improves organizational effectiveness
  • Improves organizational efficiency
  • Improves customer satisfaction
  • Improves compliance
  • Improves organizational culture
  • Improves documentation

The road to high reliability is an ongoing journey. It’s a commitment to patient safety and the way we deliver quality health care. So join the journey and let the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare guide you every step of the way.
