ASHNHA is partnering with the Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA) to participate in the CMS Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) through a contract beginning in Sept 2016. This initiative builds upon the success of the Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) and continues the Partnership for Patients Initiative.
Since the launch of the Partnership for Patients in collaboration with many other stakeholders, the vast majority of U.S. hospitals have demonstrated unprecedented national reductions in harm. The current Partnership for Patients goal is 20% reduction in all-cause patient harm.
