MHA Keystone HEN Renewed for Third Year
The MHA Keystone Center was recently awarded a third year of federal funding to continue as a Hospital Engagement Network (HEN). The center is one of 26 organizations nationally contracted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to identify, share and implement best practices to reduce preventable hospital-acquired conditions. Established in December 2011, the MHA Keystone HEN builds on the work that has proven successful in Michigan and reinforces and complements the MHA’s ongoing patient safety and quality improvement efforts. The MHA Keystone HEN aims to reduce the number of preventable adverse drug events, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, central-line-associated bloodstream infections, injuries from falls and immobility, obstetrical adverse events, pressure ulcers, surgical-site infections, venous thromboembolisms, ventilator-associated events and preventable readmissions. The renewal was based on the MHA Keystone HEN’s success over the first two years in achieving the goals of the Partnership for Patients.
