The Official Newsletter of The Joint Commission!

The Joint Commission Perspectives is your primary source for changes to accreditation and certification standards, requirements, and Joint Commission initiatives, including the new scoring and decision process.

  • In Sight allows you to monitor changes to standards, survey processes, and key initiatives before they are approved, so you are always in-the-know about what’s happening at The Joint Commission.
  • The Fact on Fiction identifies inaccurate and misleading information published about Joint Commission initiatives by organizations not affiliated with The Joint Commission and provides the correct information straight from The Joint Commission experts.
  • Sentinel Event Alert reviews each issue of Sentinel Event Alert and provides you with the root causes, risk-reduction strategies, and recommendations to improve care that you need to review for application in your organization.
