Illinois Hospital Association launches new campaign to combat HAIs

The Illinois Hospital Association, representing over 200 hospitals in the state of Illinois, launched the "Raising the Bar" campaign last week through the newly established Quality Care Institute (QCI).  This new campaign has several objectives including:

  • Reduce 30-day hospital readmission rates for congestive heart failure, heart attack, and pneumonia.
  • Reduce hospital-acquired conditions and infections such as MRSA, C Diff, CLABSI, CAUTI, SSI, and deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism following certain orthopedic procedures.

QCI hopes to make Illinois a national leader in quality care and patient safety
