Phelps Memorial Hospital Center Joins New York State Partnership for Patients
(April 11, 2012) Phelps Memorial Hospital Center has joined the New York State Partnership for Patients (NYSPFP), a statewide quality improvement initiative engaging more than 170 hospitals in activities aimed at improving quality and patient safety by reducing complications and avoidable readmissions.
NYSPFP, a joint project of the Healthcare Association of New York State and Greater New York Hospital Association, is part of a national initiative, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Partnership for Patients, which seeks to reduce hospital-acquired conditions and preventable readmissions. NYSPFP has invited key New York State health care stakeholders including regulators, consumers, clinicians, health insurers, hospital trustees, and others to contribute to NYSPFP’s statewide success.
NYSPFP will build upon existing quality improvement programs at hospitals across the state, focusing on key clinical areas as well as hospital leadership and culture, to support New York State hospitals as they continually strive to provide safe, high-quality care and improve outcomes.
As the CMS Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network for New York State, NYSPFP is responsible for providing participating hospitals with intensive technical assistance, training opportunities, educational programming, and establishing mechanisms to measure and evaluate hospital progress on key clinical and process measures.
