Dr. Jonathan Perlin
Incoming president and CEO,
The Joint Commission
Perlin will lead the Joint Commission as its next president and CEO effective March 1, 2022. Before joining HCA in 2006, Perlin was Under Secretary for Health in the Department of Veterans Affairs and chaired the Secretary of Veterans Affairs’ Special Medical Advisory Group.

Dr. Perlin speaks: “We built this learning health infrastructure, and it’s allowed us to work in a couple of levels simultaneously. One is in terms of improving care at the bedside, and the other is in terms of contributing to the understanding of quality and outcomes and advancing practice through large-scale comparative effectiveness studies.”
