The Arizona HRET Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) is in its 2nd year and continues to show steady improvement in patient safety and reduced harm. Since October of 2016, HRET HIIN Arizona hospitals have saved 50 lives as well as prevented 974 harms for a cost savings of $9,446,254! We are strategically focusing on sepsis, the UP Campaign (Soap Up, Get Up, Wake Up, and Script Up), healthcare disparities and patient and family engagement during the next year of the project. If you have questions or would like to join AzHHA’s HIIN program, please contact Vicki Buchda.
