Safety and Quality Initiative

The joint efforts of the MHA Keystone Center, MHA Patient Safety Organization and Michigan hospitals to improve patient safety and quality have yielded lifesaving results for the patients they serve. The voluntary, collaborative efforts of Michigan hospitals and health systems not only demonstrate past success; they can be modeled and adopted across the nation to bring safer, higher-quality care to all patients.

MHA Keystone Center Collaboratives
The MHA Keystone Center operates projects focused on care transitions, emergency rooms, organ donation, hospital-associated infections, intensive care units, obstetrics, safe care and surgery. The center is also a co-leader in two national projects aimed at eliminating specific hospital-associated infections and serves as a Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network. Learn more.

MHA Patient Safety Organization (PSO)
The MHA PSO assists providers in the prevention of harm by collecting and analyzing serious reportable event data, convening cross-continuum groups to share best practices, and providing tools and resources to improve patient safety. Learn more.
