National Momentum – The Partnership for Patients

 Session Overview

Join us as CMS leaders provide an update on the Partnership for Patients and share the successes of this national initiative. The Partnership for Patients is a public/private partnership working to improve the quality, safety, and affordability of healthcare for all Americans across the different care settings. Bold targets of 40% reduction in preventable hospital-acquired conditions, and reduction of all hospital readmissions by 20% over three years, were set in 2010. The tireless efforts of all stakeholders demonstrate that working together with patients and families can have dramatic outcomes.

Dr. Charles Denham will provide an update on two TMIT initiatives: CareUniversity and The 5 Rights of Imaging®. CareUniversity is an exciting educational program aimed at the 66 million informal caregivers (family members, including parents and children) who share the burden of managing and providing care to their family outside of the acute setting. It provides certification of caregivers – CareMoms®, CareDads, and CareKids® – who will acquire critical health knowledge and skills that will save the lives and financial resources of their family members. While wellness is a vital element to family health and wealth, the focus of this initiative is to address the high-impact, high-frequency, and highly preventable common scenarios that threaten families today.
The 5 Rights of Imaging is fast becoming a recognized framework to better understand and manage overuse, underuse, and misuse of medical imaging. A recently published article, "The Five Rights of Imaging: Patient-Centered Performance" by key thought leaders, highlights the magnitude of the problem – estimated at 30%-40% waste – and provides a tangible action plan for all stakeholders, including patients and families. A soon-to-be-published 5 Rights of Imaging Checklist will arm them with the knowledge to ask the key questions and ensure that they are getting the Right Study by using the Right Order, done the Right Way, to obtain the Right Report and ultimately the Right Action.

Following the session, Dennis Wagner, Co-Director of the Partnership for Patients, Paul McGann, Co-director, Partnership for Patients, and Jack Jordan, Deputy Director of the Partnership for Patients, will be joined by a reactor panel including Doug Wilson, Quality Committee Chairman at Senior Care Centers, Sheryl Aderholt, VP of Clinical Operations at Senior Care Centers, and Jennifer Dingman, Patient Safety Advocate, to further expand on the topic and take questions from webinar participants.

 Patient Safety Advocate
Jennifer Dingman
The Voice of Patient and Family

Jennifer Dingman realized, after her mother's death in 1995 due to errors in medical diagnoses and treatment, that there is little to no help available for patients and their families in similar situations. This life-changing experience left her feeling vulnerable, and she decided to dedicate her life to help prevent medical tragedies from happening to others.
