MHS Recognized for Continued Participation and Success in Hospital Improvement Innovation Network

Memorial Health System (MHS) recently received a letter of recognition and congratulations from the Executive Director of the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative:

Congratulations on your hospital’s success in the first two years of the Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN). We are pleased to recognize your hospital for achieving strong results to date in this national quality and patient safety initiative.

Your facility is among 4,000 hospitals nationally and more than 120 across the state participating in the HIIN, sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and its Partnership for Patients. Together, we are pursuing patient-centered goals of reducing all-cause inpatient harm by 20 percent and readmissions by 12 percent. 

As we evaluate our progress at the two-year mark of this innovative initiative, we are pleased to recognize Memorial Health System for successfully achieving HIIN milestones in nearly all eligible focus areas! 

It is our privilege to work with you as your state partner in this national initiative, and we wish you continued success as we extend our HIIN work together over the next 6 to 18 months. Again, congratulations on your hospital’s achievements and bold aims for delivering safe, patient-centered care.
