Essential Hospitals Engagement Network Saves Members $12M Through Prevention of Patient Harm

The Essential Hospitals Engagement Network, a network created under the public-private Partnership for Patients established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, has saved nearly $12 million over the past 18 months from the prevention of more than 1,100 patient harm events. 
The network has accomplished cost savings and improved patient safety by reducing hospital acquired infections and lowering preventable hospital readmissions, according to a news release. 
EHEN hospitals have also been identifying strategies to eliminate race, ethnicity and language-based healthcare disparities. 
EHEN has 22 participating hospitals and is the only hospital network focused on safety nets. The network uses an approach to improving care that emphasizes a creation of patient safety cultures through education of both clinicians and hospital executives.
