Partnership for Patients Preliminary Evaluation Report

The Partnership for Patients initiative was launched in 2011 with the goals of reducing preventable hospital acquired conditions by 40 percent and 30-day readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2014. In order to achieve these aims, the initiative has implemented a strategy to focus health care stakeholders, including federal and other public and private health care payors, providers, and patients on reducing hospital harms. This independent preliminary evaluation report is designed to provide an interim assessment of Partnership for Patients initiative’s progress towards reducing hospital-acquired harms. While the preliminary evaluation report documents substantial progress in reduced harm and readmissions, further work is needed to determine the Partnership for Patients initiative’s progress towards the goals of reducing preventable hospital acquired conditions by 40 percent and 30-day readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2014.
