About NYS Partnership for Patients
The New York State Partnership for Patients (NYSPFP) is 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. Since 2011, HANYS and GNYHA have been the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)-contracted New York State’s Hospital Engagement Network (HEN). NYSPFP also comprises key New York State health care stakeholders including regulators, consumers, clinicians, health insurers, hospital trustees, and others.
NYSPFP Guiding Principles
NYSPFP organizes 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.
Report: NYSPFP Working Together To Create And Sustain Change
We are proud to celebrate NYSPFP 169 participating hospitals for the many accomplishments reached over the first three years toward achieving the national goals of reducing hospital-acquired conditions by 40% and preventable readmissions by 20%. The data in this report represent NYSPFP hospitals’ collective efforts and illustrate that fewer patients in New York State are at risk of becoming injured or developing an unexpected medical condition or complication while in the hospital.
In 2015 CMS awarded another one-year contract to HANYS and GNYHA to continue partnering with member hospitals to further achieve the national goals of reducing hospital-acquired conditions by 40% and preventable admissions by 20%.
