Preventing all-cause harm continues to be a national priority. In 2016, an estimated 2.7 million harm events affecting hospital inpatients occurred, leading to more than 80,000 deaths at a cost of nearly $29 billion. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, nearly 44 percent of these events and deaths could have been prevented. Studies have shown that people who are more involved in their care tend to be more satisfied, more likely to understand their acute and chronic conditions, and are able to make informed decisions that can better help them.
This event will feature strategies for hospitals and patients/families to engage as partners to ensure the right care is being delivered to the right patient at the right time to foster improvements in patient safety, health care quality, patient outcomes and equity, while also minimizing staff burden.
