The Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) program was a unique initiative, awarded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), to reduce patient harm and readmissions .The Illinois Health and Hospital Association, in partnership with Michigan Health and Hospital Association and Wisconsin Hospital Association teamed up to support this program and build on the momentum of past CMS initiated work.
Using multiple interventions and strategies IHA has worked with 130 hospitals across Illinois to achieve a 20% reduction in all-cause patient harm and a 12% reduction in 30-day readmissions.
