Washington Partnership for Patients: Health Care Without Harm
“Forty by twenty by 13...”
Welcome to the Partnership for Patients, a nationwide collaborative effort to reduce the number of hospital-acquired conditions by 40 percent and hospital readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2013. By joining this initiative, hospitals and health care providers across the nation are pledging to make health care safer, more reliable and less costly – ultimately saving thousands of lives and millions of dollars.
Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA) is one of 26 health care organizations in the U.S. to be awarded a Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) contract by the U.S. Department of Health And Human Services in 2011. As a Partnership for Patients HEN, WSHA and the Washington State Medical Association have partnered to support hospitals and medical practices in Washington, Alaska and Oregon in their efforts to reduce patient harm.
This page is designed to help you find the resources, training and data you need to achieve your quality measurement goals in ten key areas. It also provides a forum for sharing knowledge and resources across member hospitals and health care agencies.
To help hospitals achieve success, the WSHA Hospital Engagement Network has developed Safety Action Bundle Tools. These are available by clicking on the links in the table below.
