Newport Beach — Newport Beach Marriott

Register by May 15!

Overview

On May 17, California hospital executives and quality leaders are invited to a complimentary event that marks the next step to accelerate the quality improvement and patient safety initiatives already underway among California hospitals. Former CMS Administrator Don Berwick, MD, MPP, a visionary leader in the patient safety movement, will address the work of California hospitals participating in the national Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network initiative. 

Hospitals are collaborating both locally and nationally across the various Hospital Engagement Networks to forge new practices that will drive us toward our goals of reducing patient harm by 40 percent and preventable readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2013. It is an important undertaking that, when achieved together, promises great benefits to patients and communities.

This event is being hosted by the California Hospital Association in collaboration with the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization, Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, Hospital Association of Southern California, Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties, and the Health Research & Educational Trust.  Significant support for this event has been provided by John Muir Health and UCLA Health System.

All California hospitals are invited and encouraged to attend. The program is being offered twice; a morning session will be held in Walnut Creek and an afternoon program will take place in Newport Beach. While there is no charge, preregistration by May 10 is required. Continuing education will be provided.

Many thanks to our major supporters of this program.

Don Berwick


“I firmly believe that the best way to make care affordable is to improve it. The Affordable Care Act is a foundation, and there’s a lot of stuff going on around it. It’s game time now … ”   

— Don Berwick, in an interview with The Washington Post,
     March 23, 2012
 

Don Berwick is the United States’ leading advocate for high-quality health care. He has just stepped down as the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. For 22 years prior, he was the founding CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, a nonprofit dedicated to improving health care around the world.  A pediatrician by background, he has also served on the faculty of the Harvard Medical School.

Don sees tremendous unrealized potential in American medicine. Despite our outstanding knowledge base, expert practitioners, and world-class equipment, most Americans do not have access to safe, high-quality care. Dr. Berwick presents a vision of how, through well-applied IT, new methods of health care delivery, and effective legislation, America can forge a system that satisfies our patients, our wallets, and our moral imperative to care for those who need care. His focus on improving quality has gained him a reputation as a powerful motivator who can push institutions and individuals to do their work better.

For his important role in designing Britain’s health care system, Dr. Berwick was named a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in London and Honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire. He is a professor at the Harvard Medical School and the recipient of many awards, including the Ernest A. Codman award, the American Hospital Association’s Award  of Honor, and the Heinz award for Public Policy.

CA Hospital Engagement Network

In collaboration with the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization, Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, Hospital Association of Southern California, Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties and under the umbrella of the California Hospital Engagement Network, CHA will implement a statewide model focused on providing individualized support to participating hospitals in 10 clinical areas. Hospitals will receive support through a well-defined clinical coaching model, allowing CHA, CHPSO and the Regional Associations to provide a customized solution to participating hospitals on their journey to achieve their performance goals. Together, across the state, hospitals will collaborate to meet the goals of reducing patient harm by 40 percent and preventable readmissions by 20 percent in 2013.
