GE Healthymagintaion - USA Hospital Performance


How healthy are our hospitals? The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more than 17,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. The Joint Commission’s 2009 Annual Report on Quality and Safety, the basis for this application, shows continual improvement among accredited hospitals over a seven-year period (2002-2008) in quality measures reflecting the best evidence-based treatments. Still, the quality of our hospitals varies.

About this data

The data presented here is from The Joint Commission’s 2009 Annual Report on Quality and Safety. The Joint Commission obtains information about accredited organizations not only through direct observations by its employees but also through direct communications from those accredited organizations and from measurement companies hired by accredited organizations and accepted by The Joint Commission as sources for performance measure data. Thus, the Joint Commission can provide no warranties or guarantees, express or implied, as to the complete accuracy of the information displayed on its Quality Check, and cannot be responsible for any errors or omissions in that information.
