Project Impact Summary
The American Hospital Association (AHA)/Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET) Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) as a part of the Partnership for Patients (PfP) Campaign has been in action since December 2011 to reduce hospital acquired conditions (HACs) by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent. Throughout the course of this three year project, the AHA/HRET HEN has prevented an estimate of over 92,000 harms with an estimated cost savings of $988 million. As part of the network of nearly 1,500 hospitals across 31 states, the project has had several areas of impact including: education results with hundreds of thousands of resources and tools shared and downloaded, intensive training of over 2,500 hospital staff to become Improvement Leader Fellows.
