Editor's Note

The Joint Commission on October 12 announced that it will implement new and revised Performance Improvement (PI) and Leadership (LD) accreditation standards for its Laboratory Accreditation Program, effective January 1, 2022.

The revisions factor in two common themes of organizations with successful improvement programs:

  • Adoption of an established improvement methodology and use of associated tools.
  • Development and maintenance of plans for monitoring quality and prioritizing improvement initiatives.

The revisions strengthen the link between leadership priorities and goal setting in addition to planning quality assessment and performance improvement efforts, The Joint Commission says.
