|In response to the ever increasing number of patients seeking medical care outside of their home countries, it has become essential for hospitals to undergo rigorous screening to ensure they meet international standards for healthcare services. The current leading body for such accreditation is Joint Commission International, a US-based organization widely seen as the gold standard for top-level healthcare service providers worldwide.
Hospitals seeking JCI accreditation are evaluated through stringent procedures, based on over 300 standards, including onsite inspections and personnel examinations. Only hospitals showing a strong commitment to continuously improving service quality and patient safety goals are awarded this distinction. Above all, the international standards are intended to stimulate continuous, systematic and organization-wide improvement in overall performance and outcomes.
Achieving JCI accreditation is not only an internal milestone, but also one for Thailand as a center of medical excellence. It officially recognizes that the practices of our doctors, nurses, medical assistants and the management team at Bangkok Hospital meet or exceed the standards of medical facilities in the US.
Joint Commission International Disease or Condition-Specific Certification
In 2002, Joint Commission International launched its Disease or Condition-Specific Certification (DCSC) – the first international program of its kind to certify disease management programs. To earn this distinction, a disease management program undergoes an extensive on-site evaluation by a team of Joint Commission International reviewers. The JCI Disease or Condition-Specific Certification is designed to provide a comprehensive evaluation program that can support healthcare providers in improving the safety and quality of their services.
Bangkok Hospital has received DCSC certification in the following areas:
