The Joint Commission International (JCI) is the world leader in international health accreditation, the first and only Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization.
JCI is the most prestigious and rigorous international accreditation, and for obtaining it 240 quality standards have been evaluated, each standard having at least 4 indicators. There are approximately 1000 indicators analyzed to demonstrate compliance with JCI standards.
The accreditation process lasts approximately 2 years, during this period being analyzed all the processes and procedures that underlie the medical act and that prevent human or procedural errors. In addition, in order to maintain this gold standard, it is necessary to re-evaluate hospitals every three years.
