We are pleased to congratulate hospitals in Hawaii for having the largest proportion of “A-rated” facilities, according to The Leapfrog Group’s 2018 Hospital Safety Grade update. Hawaii hospitals are leaders in using data and collaboration to drive improvements in quality and safety.
Since 2011, we’ve been working with Hawaii hospitals on advances in care that are driven by evidence-based best practices and data sharing. Over time, they’ve been able to improve patient safety by 20 percent. These hospitals are continuously exceeding new performance levels across all settings of care to benefit their patients and succeed in value-based payment models. The accomplishments of Hawaii hospitals are helping to scale innovation across the healthcare industry.
