In 2012, Apprise worked directly with 31 hospitals in state of Oregon, the American Hospital Association, and other healthcare community partners to implement the CMS initiative, Partnership for Patients. During the 2 year stint of the program, participating Oregon hospitals collectively lowered readmissions by 20% and patient harm by 40%!

Starting in 2015, the Partnership for Patients is in its second iteration with a brand new way for hospitals to submit data utilizing a browser-based data reporting platform.

OAHHS and HRET (along with other community partner organizations) will support Oregon hospitals to collect data that aim to reduce harm in 10 target areas:
  • Adverse drug events (ADE)

  • Birth-related injuries (OB)

  • Catheter-acquired urinary tract infections (CAUTI)

  • Central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI)

  • Falls

  • Pressure ulcers

  • Avoidable readmissions

  • Surgical infections and complications (SSI)

  • Venous thromboembolisms (VTE)

  • Ventilator-associated conditions¬†(VAC)
