WINNING THE FIGHT
A CDC report found strong progress by hospitals between 2015 and 2016 in reducing infections.
What we’re saying: We’re so proud of our nation’s hospitals for taking steps to fight infections, especially those we work with on these efforts every day. Hospitals in Premier collaboratives are continuously exceeding patient safety and outcomes performance levels. In fact, they outperform their peers by 23% in avoiding hospital-acquired conditions program penalties. The methods they use are detailed in our recent guidebook to optimal care delivery.
Today's the day to make your opinion count.
What we’re saying: No matter the outcome, we have the insights on what’s next for healthcare. Now more than ever, regulatory actions by this administration will be the chief driver of healthcare disruption, which will likely be significant. Register for our webinar at 1 p.m. ET on Friday 11.9 to get our take.
STANSON COMBINES W/PREMIER
Premier has agreed to acquire Stanson Health, a software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based provider of clinical decision support tools that are integrated directly into the EHR workflow, providing real-time, patient-specific best practices at the point of care.
What we’re saying: This acquisition complements our core data and analytics offerings, enabling Premier to expand the reach of our solutions directly to the point of care, where they can have the biggest impact. These capabilities will further allow us to provide evidence-based recommendations that improve quality and safety, while avoiding treatments that do not add value.
