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 aims to engage 100 percent of the nation's acute care medical centers participating in making hospital care safer, more reliable, and less costly through the achievement of two goals:

Making Care Safer. Keep patients from getting injured or sicker. Decrease all- cause patient harm (to 97 Hospital-Acquired Conditions [HACs]/1,000 discharges) by 20% percent compared to the 2014 interim baseline (of 121 HACs/1,000 patient discharges).

Improving Care Transitions. Help patients heal without complications. Decrease preventable complications during a transition from one care setting to another so that all 30 day hospital readmissions would be reduced by 12% as a population-based measure (readmissions per 1,000 people).
