The Partnership for Patients program has supported the Hospital Engagement Networks since 2011. This report reviews the results of the second round of funded effort, which involved more than 1500 hospitals in the United States that prevented 34,000 harms from September 2015 to September 2016. Areas of improvement included reductions in surgical site infections, adverse drug events, and postoperative complications. The authors also highlight core strategies of the program, such as evidence dissemination and coaching.
