The Illinois Hospital Association’s (IHA) Institute for Innovations in Care and Quality has released its quality progress report on its three-year landmark initiative, Raising the Bar: A Call to Action. The report, Improving Quality Care in Illinois Hospitals, is based on the quality achievements of 200 hospitals and health systems across Illinois who pledged in 2010 to substantially reduce hospital-acquired conditions and infections and readmissions. Overall results show clear reductions in seven key categories, resulting in 843 instances of patient harm avoided, for a total cost savings of more than $18 million.
