About NYS Partnership for Patients
The New York State Partnership for Patients (NYSPFP) was a joint initiative of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) and the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA)-hospital trade associations representing not-for profit and public health care institutions, including large health systems, acute and long-term care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, hospices, and home care. Collectively, they represent all of the hospitals in New York State. Beginning in 2011 and concluding in December, 2014, HANYS and GNYHA were the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)-contracted New York State’s Hospital Engagement Network. NYSPFP also comprised key New York State health care stakeholders including regulators, consumers, clinicians, health insurers, hospital trustees, and others.
NYSPFP Guiding Principles
NYSPFP organized its performance improvement activities to reduce hospital-acquired conditions, as well as to improve patient, family, and leadership engagement around an overarching set of guiding principles. These cross-cutting guiding principles underscore the importance of a hospital safety culture, including: innovation, engagement, integration, and the hardwiring of best practices.
