Study Describes How Partnership for Patients Initiative Will Measure Improved Patient Safety

“An Overview of Measurement Activities in the Partnership for Patients,” published online with an abstract August 12 in the Journal of Patient Safety, describes the Partnership for Patients initiative’s measurement objectives. This national quality improvement initiative launched in 2011 is defined by two national goals: reducing the rate of preventable adverse events (e.g., healthcare-associated infections, pressure ulcers and adverse drug and obstetric events) by 40 percent and reducing the rate of 30-day hospital readmissions by 20 percent. AHRQ’s William B. Munier, M.D., and Noel Eldridge, M.S., are among the article’s authors, and the latest data are available on the AHRQ website. The Partnership for Patients is a collaborative effort across all agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including AHRQ, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Administration on Aging, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the Food and Drug Administration. In addition, other stakeholders—including providers, insurers, purchasers, employers and patients—are represented.

An overview of measurement activities in the partnership for patients.


The Partnership for Patients, launched in April 2011, is a national quality improvement initiative from the Department of Health and Human Services that has set ambitious goals for U.S. providers to improve patient safety and care transitions. This paper outlines the initiative's measurement strategy, describing four measurement-related objectives: (1) to track national progress toward the program goals that U.S. hospitals reduce preventable adverse events by 40% and readmissions by 20%; (2) to support local quality improvement measurement in participating hospitals by providing the appropriate tools, training, and programmatic structure; (3) to obtain feedback on hospital and contractor progress, in close to real time, so the project can be effectively managed; and (4) to evaluate the program's impact on adverse event and readmission rates.
