Health reform initiatives
Health Reform Initiatives

Partnership for Patients

  • Reduce harm caused to patients in hospitals.

    We will accelerate the reduction of preventable harms to inpatients starting now, so that by the end of 2013 we will observe a 40% reduction in preventable harm compared to 2010. Based on our calculations, this would mean almost two million fewer injuries to patients and more than 60,000 lives saved.

  • Reduce preventable hospital readmissions.

    We will advance efforts to decrease preventable hospital readmissions within 30 days of discharge, so that by 2013 all readmissions would be reduced by 20% compared to 2010. This would mean prevention of more than 1,600,000 hospital readmissions.

    Achieving these two goals will not only save lives and greatly reduce injuries to millions of

    Americans, it will also result in savings of billions of dollars that help put the nation on

    the path to having a more sustainable health care system.
