HCIF congratulates the 17 collaborative organizations for all that they accomplished over the last 12 months in the Central PA Palliative Care/POLST Collaborative. The final report sent out last month included program highlights and results. Most noteworthy are the nearly 3,000 individuals trained in POLST, a nearly two-fold increase in the percentage of patients that had an advanced care planning discussion and completion of a POLST form, an increase in the percent of patients with consistency between treatments provided at the end of life to POLST orders, and the implementation of numerous POLST strategies such as POLST policies, triggers and education. Although the collaborative concluded in December, 2015, these organizations are poised to continue their great work towards advancing the use of POLST across the region.

The annual Partnership for Patient Care Leadership Summit was held on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, at the Top of the Tower at 1717 Arch St. in Philadelphia. Nearly 100 healthcare leaders and partners were in attendance. Pat Croskerry, MD, PhD, FRCP (Edin) was the featured keynote speaker, presenting information on the timely and important topic of diagnostic error in healthcare. HCIF acknowledges the individuals that served on the Diagnostic Error Panel and the Delaware Valley Patient Safety and Quality Award Program Panel and thank them for their contribution to those lively and provocative discussions. Attendees also learned about HCIF’s Pennsylvania Urologic Regional Coalition (PURC) from Physician Champions, Dr. Marc Smaldone and Dr. Robert Uzzo. As in years past, attendees shared in the recognition of the “top ten” entries in the Delaware Valley Patient Safety & Quality Award program, with the First Place Award Winner being Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. The Summit was made possible with funding from Independence Blue Cross and the region’s hospitals and health systems. For more information about the summit, please contact Michele Jacalone.
