Question: What does "ORYX" stand for?

Answer:

"ORYX" relates to the ORYX Performance Measurement Initiative that The Joint Commission initiated in the 1980's. With as much as The Joint Commission uses acronyms, surprisingly enough, this is not one of them. Why "ORYX"? An oryx is a swiftly moving and graceful gazelle-like animal by definition. This information, along with the fact that it is a short, unique catch word, comes together to provide an explanation as to how the initiative received its name.
