Hospital Engagement Network
In December 2011, the federal government's Partnership for Patients initiative issued $218 million in grants to create 26 Hospital Engagement Networks with some ambitious goals; reduce patient harem by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent over two years. The Health Research & Educational Trust, working with nearly 1,500 hospitals and 31 state hospital associations, operated the largest HEN. In this exclusive series, H&HN and Trustee examine how organizations in the HRET HEN are doing in achieving the lofty patient safety goals. We'll visit more than 20 locations to bring you in-depth video reports, as well as feature articles and blogs. This project is brought to you by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, the Partnership for Patients Initiative , the American Hospital Association and HRET.
