Members of America’s Essential Hospitals constantly engage in robust quality improvement initiatives, from preventing falls to reducing readmissions, patient harm events, and blood stream infections. They have created programs to break down language barriers and engage patients and families to improve quality of care. Through innovative programs and quality improvement activities, our members provide safe, efficient, and effective care.
Essential hospitals also have a strong commitment to value-based care and coordinating care among providers to improve quality, lower costs, and eliminate disparities that impact outcomes. We strive to ensure our members have sufficient resources to continue these activities and are not unfairly disadvantaged for providing comprehensive care to complex patients.
America’s Essential Hospitals regularly compiles resource pages to inform our members and other stakeholders. For more information about quality issues, visit these resource pages for new and updated information:
