Facts about Quality Check© and Quality Reports

The Joint Commission has had a longstanding commitment to provide meaningful information about the comparative performance of accredited organizations to the public. In 1994, The Joint Commission first published organization-specific Performance Reports. In 1996, Quality CheckŪ, a directory of Joint Commission accredited organizations and performance reports, became available online. In 2004, Quality Reports replaced Performance Reports, although historical Performance Reports are still available.

Improvements continued in 2006 and 2007 with a redesign of Quality Check. The process included extensive testing, field surveys, and input from consumer focus groups and stakeholders, including four advisory groups and state hospital associations. The feedback was used to refine and clarify Quality Reports for both healthcare professionals and the public.
