Iowa Healthcare Collaborative (IHC) Compass Hospital Improvement Innovation Networks (HIIN), which includes 42 South Dakota hospitals supported by the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations, was recognized as Best in Class in three out of five Patient and Family Engagement (PFE) metrics at a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) All Partners meeting held in Baltimore this week. The All Partners meeting includes representatives of the 16 HIINs, federal and private partners and patient advocate organizations.
Jennifer Brockman, director of the Hospital Services Division at IHC, said, “I am so incredibly thankful for and proud of our team! Our achievements are due to the collective efforts of all of our organizations. The collaboration and support from all partners is what made these efforts so impactful and successful, and is what sets our [COMPASS] HIIN apart from other HIINs.”
