Stories of Success! Health IT’s Impact on National Safety Goals & Priorities

HIMSS News, February 2, 2010

Emphasizing the link between improvements in healthcare quality and patient safety and health IT – HIMSS and ASQ (American Society for Quality) announce the selection of 16 real-world and peer-reviewed case study submissions.  The case studies were selected for inclusion in the program “Stories of Success! Leveraging HIT, Improving Quality & Safety”. Members of the HIMSS Patient Safety & Quality Outcomes Committee and additional subject matter experts from The Joint Commission, the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the American Society for Quality contributed to the review process.  The National Quality Forum also supports the project.

Introduced in October 2009, Stories of Success, showcases outstanding accomplishments in the adoption and use of information technology to achieve improved patient safety, quality, effectiveness and efficiency. The call for case studies highlights the fulfillment of the national priorities established by the National Priorities Partnership (NPP) and The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG).

The case studies are posted on the HIMSS Web site with the next call for Stories of Success! opening in early March.
