The program serves as a resource for nurse leaders seeking to transform not only the way they care for patients, but also the culture in which they find themselves working, so that innovation and transformation becomes a daily pattern. CCIT performance measures will be aligned with the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence (HPOE) initiative, where participating hospitals will collect and report data according to the HPOE guidelines. This will enable standardization of reporting across the country.
