Daejeon Ye Dental Clinic earned accreditation from Joint Commission International in January.
This type of accreditation ― a first for a Korean clinic ― is widely used to evaluate the overall facilities as well as the techniques and services of a medical institute according to an international standard.
“Earning accreditation from the JCI will be another step toward excellence,” said clinic chief Cho Won-tak.
The standards focus on the areas that most directly impact patient care. These include access to care, assessment of patients, infection control, patient/family rights and education. Facility management and safety, staff qualification, quality improvement, organizational leadership and management of information are also assessed.
