The report aims to provide an executive summary and major results and accomplishments, lessons learned and challenges and opportunities of the Jordan Healthcare Accreditation Project (JHAP). The overall goal of the JHAP was to improve the health status of all Jordanians and quality and safety of healthcare services through accreditation. The project's methodology was assisting the Government of Jordan to adopt a regulatory framework for the health sector, through the establishment of national and internationally recognized healthcare standards and accreditation. The key results of the project include an organizationally and financially sustainable accrediting agency in Jordan, the Health Care Accreditation Council (HCAC), an HCAC board with the appropriate skills to govern the agency and support from the Ministry of Health, the Royal Medical Services, the university hospitals, and the Royal Court for accreditation. The report concludes with recommendations for the HCAC in areas such as financial sustainability, credibility of the organization, keeping the momentum and new business development and innovation. Some opportunities that the report suggests include expanding in the Middle East and North Africa region, partnering with well-known quality organizations, offering courses online and benchmarking subscriptions.
