patient safety

COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)
ASHNHA is closely monitoring the rapidly-emerging outbreak of COVID-19 and working to connect members to resources to support preparation and response.

Providing quality health care and ensuring patient safety are top priorities for hospitals in Alaska. Through innovative and aggressive statewide quality initiatives, Alaska hospitals are working to become a national model for high quality health care. 

Quality initiatives have successfully helped ASHNHA hospitals achieve significant reductions in avoidable readmissions, lower infection rates and improve surgical care outcomes. 

Currently, ASHNHA  facilitates initiatives to reduce patient harm, save lives and improve efficiencies in health care.
