The American Hospital Association/Health Research & Educational Trust Hospital Engagement Network 2.0 project was a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services project from September 24, 2015 through September 23, 2016. The information, tools and resources produced during the course of the project have been made publicly available as a mechanism to continue to allow hospitals to advance their improvements efforts to reach their quality and patient safety goals. Because this is no longer an active project, the website will not be updated regularly. We hope that you find the information presented on this site valuable as you continue on your quality improvement journey.
Since September 2015, the American Hospital Association (AHA)/Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET) Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) 2.0 project, a part of the Partnership for Patients (PfP) campaign, has been in action to reduce hospital acquired conditions (HACs) by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent by September 23, 2016. Throughout the course of this one-year project, AHA/HRET HEN 2.0 hospitals have prevented over 34,000 harms and have saved nearly $300 million in health care costs.
