“We have benefited from attending many webinars and several in-person conferences regarding current quality and safety issues that all hospitals are dealing with. It has been helpful to see metrics that compare us to local and regional groups. Several of our leaders have presented or been involved with best-practice discussions on various topics, and we have enjoyed sharing our experiences and also hearing about the challenges and successes of others.”  —414-bed urban hospital

“Our infection prevention team finds HIIN tracers to be incredibly informative. We welcome their recommendations and appreciate the thorough review and honest feedback.”  —414-bed urban hospital

“The local collaborative workshops are an incredible opportunity to network and discuss learnings that can be realistically applied.

“Availability of our quality advisor to come on-site to educate and share outcomes at committees and councils helps give credibility and awareness to the work.

“The HSAG HIIN infection prevention team was great to work with. They were professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and personable. Through the tracer and interaction with them, our team was able to identify areas of improvement that will help strengthen our current practices and/or processes. They were also great about acknowledging and pointing out areas in which we showed strength. They gave great immediate feedback with clear, understandable rationale, and were able to further back up their recommendations by providing evidence-based best-practice literature from multiple professional organizations when discussing the final evaluation. Furthermore, they were able to give us suggestions and input on how to navigate through some of the unique best-practice challenges we face at our facility. Their visit proved very insightful and helpful to our organization.”  —279-bed urban hospital

“This team has provided FREE expertise, great tools and sharing best practices. This is not available free of charge anywhere. This is extremely important for cash-strapped hospitals.”  —323-bed urban hospital

“The HSAG HIIN has benefited our facility by pushing us to look ahead at areas of quality that we need to improve before they become CMS requirements. All of the measures within the compendium are valuable in either spotlighting to us where we are doing well, or where we are falling short. We have Core Measures, which are of course very important, the HIIN measures take us further. I really enjoy the team collaboration that being a part of the HIIN provides, that there are no stupid questions, and we have the opportunity to share and learn from each other in these small groups. The tools and resources are awesome as well. The HIIN helps us to just be aware of what is on the horizon for quality, as well as helps us to see how we are doing now in comparison to our peers.”  —111-bed rural hospital
