OAHHS was selected as one of 14 national, regional, or state hospital associations and health-system organizations to continue efforts in reducing preventable hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions. Through the Partnership for Patients initiative, a nationwide public-private collaboration that began in 2011 to reduce preventable hospital-acquired conditions by 40 percent and 30-day readmissions by 20 percent, Oregon will participate in a second round of Hospital Engagement Networks to continue working to improve patient care in the hospital setting.
