Nearly 200 Hospitals Participating in California Hospital Engagement Network

CHA, along with the Regional Associations and the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization, has enrolled almost 200 hospitals in the California Hospital Engagement Network. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has funded this work as part of the Partnership for Patients. Together, across the state, hospitals will collaborate to meet the goals of reducing patient harm by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent in 2013. Enrolled hospitals have completed a Needs Assessment Survey that is being used to finalize the work plan. Findings from the survey can be found at Support activities will begin in April.
