The Health Care Improvement Foundation is pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Delaware Valley Patient Safety and Quality Award!

Hospitals and health systems across the region submitted 31 competitive entries. Our review panel and selection committee members judged the submissions based on evaluation criteria including evidence of significant and sustained improvement in quality or patient safety; innovation; leadership and organizational commitment to improvement; use of a multidisciplinary approach; and the potential for replication in other healthcare organizations.

The top three winners were recognized at the DVHC Annual Meeting on Friday, November 7, 2014:

• First Place: Main Line Health System “Improving Mortality through Strategies that Drive Change in Culture and Behavior", submitted by Denise M. Murphy

• Second Place: Hospital of University of Pennsylvania " Perfect Storm of Inpatient Communication Needs: An Innovative Solution", submitted by Neha Patel

• Third Place: Thomas Jefferson University Hospital " Do No Harm: Ensuring Medication Safety", submitted by Craig Senholzi

The winning organizations each received a grant from HCIF to help support their quality and safety initiatives. We appreciate the high level of participation in this year’s award program and encourage your continued progress.
