AHRQ Collaboration to Support the Partnership for Patients (P for P)

Text version of slide presentation from a National Advisory Council meeting.

Partnership for Patients: Better Care, Lower Costs

Text Description is below the image.

Secretary Sebelius has launched a new nationwide public-private partnership to tackle all forms of harm to patients. Our goals are:

  • Keep patients from getting injured or sicker. By the end of 2013, preventable hospital-acquired conditions would decrease by 40% compared to 2010.
    • Achieving this goal would mean approximately 1.8 million fewer injuries to patients with more than 60,000 lives saved over the next three years.
  • Help patients heal without complication. By the end of 2013, preventable complications during a transition from one care setting to another would be decreased so that all hospital readmissions would be reduced by 20% compared to 2010.
    • Achieving this goal would mean more than 1.6 million patients would recover from illness without suffering a preventable complication requiring re-hospitalization within 30 days of discharge.

Potential to save up to $35 billion dollars over three years.
