In one year, Hospital Engagement Network programs that teach best practices and instill a culture of safety prevented at least 5,283 instances of patient harm in 77 hospitals across Florida.

A statewide safety collaborative among Florida hospitals prevented at least 5,283 instances of patient harm and saved $28.7 million in one year, the Florida Hospital Association said.

FHA's Hospital Engagement Network program is part of the national Partnership for Patients initiative that was created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to improve healthcare quality.

FHA created its HEN in partnership with the American Hospital Association's Health Research and Educational Trust with an aim toward providing hospitals access to national and local educational events and a range of best practices and resources.
