Description

Overview

NQF is taking action to advance the patient safety, care coordination, and person-centered priority areas of the National Quality Strategy by supporting the Partnership for Patients' (PfP) goals of reducing hospital-acquired conditions by 40 percent and preventable hospital readmissions by 20 percent. This project seeks to bring together key stakeholders to address important aspects of patient safety through multi-stakeholder collaboration.

Patient Safety Collaboration Components

Action Teams

Each Action Team will follow NQF's established best practices for identifying shared goals, building consensus, and taking collective action to improve patient safety.  

  • Maternity Action Team
    This action team will focus on improving maternity care for mothers and babies.
  • Readmissions Action Team
    This action team will promote person-centered care to reduce avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions in vulnerable populations.
  • Patient and Family Engagement Action Team
    This action team will focus on promoting person-centered care through patient and family engagement across the continuum of care.

Patient Safety Collaboration Quarterly Meetings

Quarterly meetings invite stakeholders to collectively work to amplify, augment, and accelerate results around patient safety through multi-stakeholder collaboration. Patient Safety Collaboration Quarterly Meetings began in JAN 2014.

Quarterly Impact Reports

NQF will produce four Quarterly Impact Reports that describe best practices in the field to accelerate change in patient safety. Each Quarterly Impact Report will include at least three examples of stakeholders achieving success through collaboration in supporting PfP goals. Quarterly Impact Reports began in JAN 2014.
