Academy to Provide Accreditation Technical Assistance, Preparation, Resources and Training
OAK BROOK, Illinois, June 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Joint Commission International (JCI) and China Resources Healthcare Group Ltd. (CRHG) have named the JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management, a joint venture of the two organizations, as the exclusive provider for JCI advisory services for health care organizations in Mainland China (PRC), Hong Kong and Macao. The JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management provides accreditation technical assistance, preparation, resources and training, allowing Chinese health care organizations to have one official source for all JCI advisory services.
"Our expert advisory services are in high demand among local hospitals," said Marwa Zohdy, PhD, CJCP, vice president, Global Consulting Services, JCI. "These hospitals need top-tier consultants, who bring a global perspective on the JCI accreditation process, but also understand the local context. The JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management addresses these needs, and it benefits not only organizations new to JCI accreditation but also those in need of re-accreditation and other quality and safety improvement support."
"We look forward to continuing to invest in PRC and see opportunity for the growth and improvement of health care across the region," added Paula Wilson, president and CEO, JCI.
"These new advisory services, offered exclusively by the JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management, mean more Chinese health care professionals will receive top-level training to help increase the adoption and transformation of patient safety improvement practices in our nation's public and private hospitals," said Jeff Shan, chairman of the board, JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management.
JCI is a global leader in health care quality improvement and patient safety — nearly 1,000 organizations in 68 countries have earned its prestigious Gold Seal of Approval®. In PRC, 93 hospitals, academic medical centers and ambulatory facilities are accredited by JCI. CRHG is a health care industry platform centered on medical treatment that specializes in hospital investment and operations management.
The JCI-CRHG Academy of Hospital Management launched in 2015, and some of its first activities were translating JCI's popular titles into Chinese, including its 6th edition of Accreditation Standards for Hospitals, as well as conducting education and training events for health care organizations across PRC.
JCI will continue to perform accreditation surveys separately. The use of JCI advisory services is not necessary to obtain accreditation from JCI, nor does it influence the granting of such accreditation.
