National Patient Safety Focus in 2023 and Beyond

Patient Safety

About This Webinar

CMS and the National Steering Committee for Patient Safety (NSC) have aligned on inpatient acute care focus related to patient safety improvement. Recent data indicate that infection rates and other hospital-associated adverse events increased before COVID-19 and worsened during the pandemic. National thought leaders have made several recommendations and are challenging healthcare leaders to adopt the system-wide patient safety bundle. This webinar explores those elements and gives examples of what leaders can do to improve patient safety.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about the 2023 IPPS final rule.
  • Examine the recommendations for a full system-wide patient safety bundle.
  • Gain insight into how some organizations are achieving success in patient safety despite the challenges that came from the pandemic.
