Health care organizations are
encouraged to submit real-world success stories of using health information
technology to meet The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals or the
national patient safety recommendations of the National Priorities Partnership
(NPP). Submissions will be peer-reviewed and considered as case studies for
inclusion in the Stories of Success! Leveraging HIT, Improving Quality &
Stories should show the link between improvements in health care quality and patient safety and health information technology. The project is sponsored by the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and co-sponsors American Society for Quality (ASQ), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF). A representative from the National Quality Forum (NQF), The Joint Commission, and NCQA will serve on the case study review group.
The application deadline is April 18, 2011. Get more information and submit your story.
