Brian Gooch with JCAHO President Dr. Dennis O'Leary

This past week, Brian Gooch was on a tour of his clients' facilities in Asia, and our communication was mostly via blackberry. Finally, I managed to coax him away from his blackberry, and sit in front of a computer long enough to answer a few questions. The service he provides and the knowledge of healthcare facility surveying procedures he brings to the table is quite unique and specialized.
Question: Your firm, Gooch & Associates, Inc., provides consulting services to healthcare providers worldwide. Your expertise, and current focus, is on helping your clients achieve Joint Commission ( JCI for International Healthcare Providers ) accreditation. Is that correct? What kind of help do you provide to healthcare providers, and what is your background and experience, as pertaining to the Joint Commission? Brian Gooch: Our core business is Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation preparation, i.e., doing whatever it takes to help the client achieve their goal of accreditation.
Brian Gooch: The accreditation standards are broken into two groups; those related to patient care, e.g., assessment, medication management, education, etc. and those related to organizational structures, e.g., leadership, facility management, information management, human resources, etc.
Brian Gooch: If an organization hires us to take them to accreditation, we can provide an estimate of the time frame.
Brian Gooch: Gooch and Associates has never had an organization that went forward to accreditation NOT make it.
Brian Gooch: You are right, it is specialized.
Brian Gooch: You are right - they are suspiciously close!
Brian Gooch: I have already mentioned that the bulk of our folks are former JC trained surveyor/evaluators.
Brian Gooch: Very good question.
Brian Gooch: The future is always hard to predict, but I think what COULD happen is that something like medical tourism could help spur Indian's infrastructure development (modernized airports, improved roads, etc.) to better compete with Thailand and Singapore, for example. What I have seen happen elsewhere is that patients will start to notice that there is a difference between two hospitals, e.g., one touting JCI accreditation and the other not, and will say or think something like ‘the first hospital did this accreditation thing, when they did not have to and the second hospital has not, maybe I should go to the first hospital.' So then other hospitals will start seeking accreditation just to keep up with the ‘first movers.'
Question: Anything else you wish to add? Brian Gooch: No, I think you have covered the most salient issues. Thank you for the opportunity to talk with you.
That was Brian Gooch, of Gooch & Associates. I'd like to thank Mr. Gooch for taking the time to answer these questions and share his knowledge and experience about JCI accreditation planning and preparation. We hope he keeps intact his track record of 100% success.
