Sharing and Caring

Rich Umbdenstock, AHA President and CEO

Got great ideas? Share them! The American Hospital Association is dedicated to helping hospitals exchange ideas about what is working for them. One good idea: Join our Board Chair, Benjamin K. Chu, M.D., for a Twitter Chat focusing on patient engagement on Monday, Sept. 16, from 11:00 - Noon ET. Tweet your best strategies for effectively engaging patients and their families and learn what other hospitals and health systems are doing. Twitter not your thing? Watch the latest short video from our Hospital Engagement Network (HEN). Funded by a two-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in December 2011, the HEN project facilitates information exchange among hospitals, state hospital associations and AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust, with the lofty goal of reducing patient harm by 40% and readmissions by 20%. Sharing and caring – a great combination.

Thanks,
Rich
