Nearly 40 Michigan hospital leaders, patient safety professionals and lawmakers gathered at the state Capitol on May 3 for the MHA Patient Safety and Quality Advocacy Day Breakfast.
The breakfast reception gave Michigan lawmakers and MHA members an opportunity to discuss Michigan’s nationally acclaimed approach to improving healthcare quality and reducing costs in hospitals through voluntary efforts and evidence-based practices.
All Michigan hospitals and thousands of their team members — from direct healthcare providers, such as nurses and doctors, to front-office executives — are voluntarily participating in MHA programs to improve the delivery of healthcare by tackling issues such as sepsis, readmission rates, opioid use and catheter-associated urinary tract Infections.
MHA CEO Brian Peters discussed with attendees the patient safety and quality work currently being done through the MHA Keystone Center and how it is saving lives and money in Michigan. He also discussed the MHA Keystone Center Speak-up! Award, which acknowledges individuals or teams in Michigan Patient Safety Organization member hospitals who prevent patient or staff harm by speaking up when they see a potential adverse event.
