Ernest Codman, M.D., proposes the “end result system of hospital standardization.” Under this system, a hospital would track every patient it treated long enough to determine whether the treatment was effective. If the treatment was not effective, the hospital would then attempt to determine why, so that similar cases could be treated successfully in the future.
The ACS develops the Minimum Standard for Hospitals. Requirements fill one page.
The ACS begins on-site inspections of hospitals. Only 89 of 692 hospitals surveyed meet the requirements
The first standards manual is printed consisting of 18 pages.
The standard of care improves over time and more than 3,200 hospitals achieve approval under the program
The American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Hospital Association (AHA), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) join with the ACS to create the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH), an independent, not-for-profit organization whose primary purpose is to provide voluntary accreditation.
JCAH publishes Standards for Hospital Accreditation.
Standards are recast to represent optimal achievable levels of quality, instead of minimum essential levels of quality.
The organization name changes to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations to reflect an expanded scope of activities.
The Accreditation Manual for Hospitals begins the multiyear transition to standards that emphasize performance improvement concepts.
The Sentinel Event Policy is established for the evaluation of sentinel events in accredited organizations and their relationship to accreditation status.

Building a Safer Health care System
98,000 preventable deaths each year,with an associated cost of $17 to $29 billion.
"The mission of the Joint Commission is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations
JCI introduced the IPSGs in 2006 and surveyors have been evaluating compliance with these goals during accreditation surveys in 2006, but these findings have not affected the accreditation decision. Beginning 1 January 2007, hospitals accredited by JCI are required to display compliance with the following ISPGs (in addition to JCI’s 368 standards in 11 chapters): Goal: Identify Patients Correctly.Goal:Improve Effective CommunicationGoal: Improve the Safety of High-alert MedicationsGoal: Eliminate Wrong-site, Wrong-patient, Wrong-procedure Surgery.Goal: Reduce the Risk of Health Care–acquired InfectionsGoal: Reduce the Risk of Patient Harm Resulting from Falls

But it is also a case which illustrates that money and power drives medical care in the US and, by extension, internationally.The last concern of thismachineis your health, care and safety.
