The HSAG/HQI Partnership invites hospitals to join the HSAG
Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) and to be a part
of the greater achievements going forward.
A continuation of our CalHEN work, the HSAG HIIN will support
hospitals in sustaining and advancing improvement. Free of
charge, programming will be customized to fit the unique needs
and contexts of each hospital. Through a robust partnership of
hospitals, enhanced by the expertise of leading national quality
and patient safety experts, we will expand the use of best
practices and accelerate improvement in critical areas of
healthcare. Over 270 hospitals have already expressed interest to
commit to the HSAG HIIN and we’d like to include you!
Focusing on patient experience is key to creating a high-quality
health care system. P4PEx is our vehicle for assisting
California hospitals with systemic advances in patient experience
and engagement. Emphasis on cultural competence is a
natural complement given California’s demographic diversity.
