 Unfortunately, Josie King's Story is Not Rare

Unfortunately, Josie King's Story is Not Rare.

  • On any given day, 1 out of every 20 patients in American hospitals is affected by a hospital-acquired infection.
  • Among chronically ill adults, 22 percent report a "serious error" in their care.
  • One out of seven Medicare beneficiaries is harmed in the course of their care, costing the federal government over $4.4 billion each year.
  • Medical harm is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. Each year, 100,000 Americans die from preventable medical errors in hospitals– more than auto accidents, AIDS, and breast cancer combined.
  • Despite pockets of success— we still see massive variation in the quality of care, and no major change in the rates of harm and preventable readmissions over the past decade.

We can do much better—and we must.

We Know Major Improvement Is Possible

  • Ascension Health sites participating in a 2007 perinatal safety initiative achieved birth trauma rates that were at or near zero.
  • 150 New Jersey health care facilities reduced pressure ulcers by 70%.
  • Rhode Island reported a 42% decrease in Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections (CLABSI) (2006-2007).
  • 65+ IHI Campaign hospitals reported going more than a year without a ventilator-associated pneumonia in at least one unit.
  • The 14 QIO Communities participating in the 9th SOW Care Transitions Theme achieved significant reduction in readmissions compared to 52 peer communities.

 Ascension Health: Our Journey to Zero - FY10 Results

Ascension Health: Our Journey to Zero—FY10 Results

Image showing the following infections have decreased by:

National Average:
94% Pressure Ulcers
89% Neonatal Mortality
65% Birth Trauma
74% VAP
43% Blood Stream Infections
57% Falls with Serious injuries
25% Mortality

Measurement of Ascension Health Performance 07/01/09—6/30/10. National estimates are the latest available in the literature and other sources of data (data collection methodologies may not be identical). Birth Trauma & Neonatal Mortality—2005, Facility-Acquired Pressure Ulcers—2004 data; Falls with Serious Injury 1985—1999 data; Central Line Blood Stream Infection & Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia—2006 -2008 data, Mortality 2009 data.

 How Will Change Actually Happen?

How Will Change Actually Happen?

  • There is no "silver bullet".
  • We must apply many incentives.
  • We must show successful alternatives.
  • We must offer intensive supports.
    • Help providers with the painstaking work of improvement.

Slide 17

 Coming CMS Supports

Coming CMS Supports

  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has committed up to $500 million to help hospitals and health care organizations to improve patient care to:
    • Provide national-level content for anyone and everyone.
    • Support every facility to take part in cooperative learning.
    • Establish an Advanced Participants Network for ambitious organizations to tackle all-cause harm.
    • Engage patients and families in making care safer.
    • Improve measurement and data collection, without adding burdens to hospitals.
    • Make data transparent.
  • Awards to be made in the Fall of 2011.

Slide 18

 Areas of Focus

Areas of Focus

  • Adverse Drug Events.

  • Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections.
  • Injuries from Falls and Immobility.
  • Obstetrical Adverse Events.
  • Pressure Ulcers.
  • Surgical Site Infections.
  • Venous Thromboembolism.

Slide 19

 What are some of the practices successful hospitals use to reduce all-cause harm?

What are some of the practices successful hospitals use to reduce all-cause harm?

  • Using checklists and standardized packages containing everything needed to place a central line to reduce the incidence of CLABSI.
  • Standardized use of urometers for all Foley catheters to reduce the incidence of CAUTI.
  • Using a Pharmacist-Directed Anticoagulation Service (PDAS) to improve anticoagulant medication selection and improve care transitions.
  • Use of culture change and PDSA cycles to evaluate the success of these approaches and identify opportunities for improvement.

Slide 20

 What will be different about hospital care?

What will be different about hospital care?

Hospital Experience of Today:

  • Irregular leadership review of quality data.
  • Hodge-podge of different quality programs.
  • Sometimes outcomes change, sometimes they don't. Hospitals get credit for participating.
  • Limited work on readmissions; no clear strategy for care transitions.
  • Patients and families not an active part of the process; unable to advocate for the highest-quality care.

Hospital Experience of Tomorrow:

  • The Board demands more attention to quality; the hospital administrator reviews safety and quality data every week.
  • The organization has a portfolio of 10-12 improvement projects.
  • Major incentives to change outcomes (payment at risk, increased transparency and media scrutiny).
  • Dedicated staff and programming around seamless care transitions.
  • The organization interfaces with the patient and family movement, supported by the Partnership.
