Pratt Regional Medical Center Participates in Patient Safety Program

Pratt Regional Medical Center has been recognized by the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative (KHC) and the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA) for its participation in a three-year national Partnership for Patients initiative known as the Hospital Engagement Network (HEN).

On December 2, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that HEN efforts to improve patient safety resulted in a 17 percent decline in hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) such as adverse drug events, pressure ulcers, and surgical site infections among others. HHS had set an ambitious goal of reducing HACs by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2014.

Pratt Regional Medical Center and 99 other hospitals in the Kansas HEN collectively prevented an estimated 3,800 safety events (including readmissions) at an estimated cost savings of more than $23.2 million, as calculated by the Health Educational Research Trust (HRET). HHS reported that national efforts to improve patient safety resulted in an estimated 1.3 million fewer patient safety events, 50,000 lives saved and $12 billion in health spending avoided.

“Our staff is committed to providing high quality health care,” PRMC President and CEO Susan Page said. “Collaborating with other hospitals in the state to improve patient safety is something we are proud to participate in.”

The statewide collaborative, led by the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative, allowed hospitals to learn from state and national subject matter experts, plus work together to share best practices and resources that rapidly achieve progress in technical and cultural aspects of patient safety.

“These phenomenal results across the state and nation represent major strides in patient safety thanks to a strong collaboration among our hospitals,” President and CEO of the KHA, Tom Bell said. “We congratulate and thank all Kansas hospitals and our many partners for their leadership and hard work now and into the future.”

In 2015, many Kansas hospitals will continue their collaboration through the Kansas HEN. KHC will sustain and support the improvement infrastructure created for Kansas hospitals by offering education and technical assistance, as well as providing resources and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning.
