Joint Commission offers accredited hospitals real-time quality metrics

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Joint Commission on May 14 announced that it is expanding its quality measure program to provide accredited hospitals with year-round, real-time access to quality measures without additional outside vendors.

The Joint Commission can now use a single environment to specify, develop, test, and distribute clinical quality language (CQL) measures.
