Quality & Patient Safety

Partnership for Patients Excellence Awards

More than 100 hospitals across Minnesota are currently participating in the Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network 2.0 (HEN 2.0) focusing on improving ten hospital-acquired conditions. The goals of the campaign are to:

  • Decrease preventable hospital-acquired conditions by 40 percent
  • Decrease hospital readmissions by 20 percent   

MHA recognizes HEN participants for their superior performance in patient safety when they achieve and sustain a 40 percent reduction on at least six hospital-acquired conditions and meet three or more patient and family engagement (PFE) criteria. Hospitals that meet this level of achievement receive a Partnership for Patients Excellence banner to display in their hospital. Under the initial HEN work, 25 hospitals received a banner. 

91 hospitals have demonstrated high performance on three or more hospital-acquired conditions through HEN 2.0.
