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.
