Reducing variation in care among nurses and doctors to prevent and reduce hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).
With the global change in aging demographics, the complexity of cases and the use of certain devices and interventions has increased, along with the risk of HACs.
Complicated terminology and numerous abbreviations associated with HACs creates a need to make definitions more accessible to front-line clinicians.
Many clinicans are juggling a number of cases and conditions, making it difficult to prioritize specific actions, thus increasing the risk of HACs.
HACs continue to affect both patient and financial outcomes, with approximately 3 million cases annually, resulting in over $2 billion in excess hospital costs.

Learn the impact of HACs on patient care, outcomes, and finances and four strategies to decrease them in your organization.
