Partnership for Patients
Share |

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Partnership for Patients program is working to enhance the quality, safety and affordability of health care for all Americans. Partnership for Patients is a public-private partnership. In order to shape the Partnership for Patients, physicians, nurses, hospitals, employers, patients and their advocates, and the federal and State governments all came together.

The Partnership for Patients (and over 3,700 participating hospitals) is focused on making hospital care safer, more dependable, and less expensive through the accomplishment of two key goals:

  1. Making Care Safer. By the end of 2013, preventable hospital-acquired conditions would decrease by 40% compared to 2010.
  2. Improving Care Transitions. By the end of 2013, preventable complications during a transition from one care setting to another would be decreased so that all hospital readmissions would be reduced by 20% compared to 2010.
