Midstate Joins The Partnership for Patients
The Partnership for Patients: Better Care, Lower Costs is a new public-private partnership that will help improve the quality, safety and affordability of health care for all Americans.
Using as much as $1 billion in new funding provided by the Affordable Care Act and leveraging a number of ongoing programs, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will work with a wide variety of public and private partners to achieve the two core goals of this partnership â€“ keeping patients from getting injured or sicker in the health care system and helping patients heal without complication by improving transitions from acute-care hospitals to other care settings, like home or a skilled nursing facility.
MidState is proud to be one of the hospitals across the nation working towards these goals. For more information on the partnership visit the HealthCare.gov website or just click on the image to the right.
We Pledge To :
- Make these goals a priority of our Board of Directors, senior leaders, clinicians, and staff;
- Support clinicians and staff working for and with us and engage patients and families in order to make care safer, improve communication, and increase coordination by implementing proven systems and processes; and
- Learn from and share with others our experiences with making care safer and more coordinated.
