Dr. Jonathan Perlin
President and CEO, The Joint Commission
Perlin, who has led the Joint Commission since March 2022, has already overseen major changes to its process for evaluating healthcare organizations. Several months after his arrival, the commission announced it would retire or revise more than 150 standards, with an eye toward making room for metrics regarding health equity, sustainability, infection control and workforce development. Perlin previously spent more than 15 years at HCA Healthcare and served as the under secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine.
