The fifth edition features new and substantially updated standards and measurable elements that take effect 1 April 2014. Updates emerged through an extensive process involving JCI surveyors and consultants, focus groups held in 16 countries, interviews with hospital CEOs, and online reviews by hundreds of health care professionals. A 13-member multinational Standards Advisory Panel — comprised of physicians, nurses, administrators, and public policy experts — guided the revision process. The result is a manual with more focus on pressing issues such as use of medical technology, supply chain integrity, handover communications in patient care, infectious disease management, and creating and maintaining a safety culture.

“The health care world has changed substantially in the last three years, and so has JCI. The fifth edition is designed to help hospitals and academic medical centers continuously improve their quality and patient safety efforts and prepare for the future,” explained Paul vanOstenberg, Vice President of International Accreditation, Standards, and Measurement, JCI.

The e-book, in English, is currently available, the print version in October 2013, and translated e-books in Arabic, simplified Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and Turkish in early 2014.

Hospital leaders considering JCI accreditation can learn about strategies for compliance at the International Practicum on Accreditation and Quality Improvement in Seoul (2-6 September) or Dubai (27-31 October). Accreditation Update seminars for JCI-accredited organizations preparing for fifth edition compliance will be held in Seoul, 29-30 August; Singapore, 9-10 September; Bangkok, 14-15 September; Amsterdam, 10-11 October; and Dubai, 28-29 October.
