Data

MHA patient safety and quality efforts are guided and proven effective by data. Hospitals across Michigan have voluntarily submitted data on medical errors, infection rates and more so that, ultimately, the right patient gets the right treatment, every time. Through this data, the efforts to improve safety and quality have been made to focus on areas in need of most improvement, such as patient falls, medication errors and hospital-associated infections. In addition, the data has allowed for the measurement of improvement as efforts advance. For example, through data collection as part of the project to reduce bloodstream infections, it has been shown that Michigan hospitals have saved hundreds of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars. Data is currently collected by the MHA PSO and by all MHA Keystone Center collaborative teams for analysis.

  • The MHA PSO collects data based on the 29 serious reportable events identified by the National Quality Forum, which are each classified under one of seven categories: surgical, product or device, patient protection, care management, environment, radiologic, or criminal.
  • The MHA Keystone Center projects and Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) participants collect data on hospital-associated infections, intensive care unit-related infections, obstetrics, care transitions, emergency room care, organ donation, obstetrics and surgery and the 10 hospital-acquired conditions outlined by the Partnership for Patients for HENs.

MHA Keystone: Safe Care Workshop
Registration is now open for the MHA Keystone: Safe Care workshop, being held Sept. 17 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, East Lansing. Hospitals participating in any of the MHA Keystone: Safe Care initiatives — falls, pressure ulcers, venous thromboembolism (VTE) and adverse drug events (ADEs) — or the MHA Keystone HEN are strongly encouraged to attend. Multiple presentations will occur simultaneously and will include training on the use of Failure Mode & Effects Analysis, root-cause analysis and examine best practices for reducing harm due to patient falls and immobility, hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, opioids, ADEs and VTEs. Hospital teams will also hear from experts on engaging patients and their families in quality improvement work and high reliability concepts.

To register, visit the MHA Event Registration page or complete the registration form and return via email to Tammy Nault or fax to (517) 703-0605. Registration will close Sept. 3 and all registrations received after this deadline will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
