Quality Initiative Programs
In addition to our own high patient standards, we also participate in quality initiative programs that are collaborative and created by respected national health care organization and institutions. Here are some of the national programs and initiatives that Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett is proud to be a part of.
100,000 Lives Campaign
The 100,000 Lives Campaign was an initiative developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) to engage U.S. hospitals in a commitment to implement changes to improve patient care and prevent avoidable deaths. The 3,100 hospitals nationwide that participated in this initiative saved an estimated 122,000 lives in 18 months. Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett has implemented all six of the campaign’s quality improvement measures.
We have just begun participating in the IHI’s follow-up initiative, The 5 Million Lives Campaign, which challenges American hospitals to adopt six additional changes in care that save lives and reduce patient injuries.
American Heart Association – Get With the Guidelines Program
Get With the Guidelines is a hospital-based quality improvement program designed by the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association to provide hospital staff with tools that follow proven evidence-based guidelines and procedures for cardiac patients in their care. It empowers health care provider teams to consistently treat heart and stroke patients according to the most up-to-date guidelines.
