The Joint Commission’s ORYX® initiative integrates performance measurement data into the accreditation process. ORYX® measurement requirements support Joint Commission accredited organizations in their quality improvement efforts.
For Assisted Living Communities (ALC), reporting of ORYX Performance Measure data to The Joint Commission is:
Optional for CY2022 and/or CY2023 – organizations may elect to submit no measure data, some measure data, or all measure data
Mandatory for all measures for all four quarters, effective 1/1/2024
Accredited Assisted Living Communities (ALC) will abstract standardized performance measures and enter their data into the Joint Commission’s Direct Data Submission Platform (DDSP) for accreditation purposes.
