Beginning as early as 2009, Texas began to put the antecedents in place for an effective Medicaid value-based purchasing model. Since those early activities were undertaken, Texas Medicaid is emerging as a national leader in value-based purchasing and has produced exceptional results that clearly demonstrate the value proposition associated with alignment of financial incentives. This article presents several years of data and preliminary results of this effort. This study found significant improvements in a number of outcomes...

Communication errors during shift-to-shift handoffs are a leading cause of preventable adverse events. Nevertheless, handoff skills are variably taught at medical schools. The authors administered questionnaires on handoffs to interns during orientation. Questions focused on medical school handoff education, experiences, and perceptions. The majority (546/718) reported having some form of education on handoffs during medical school, with 48% indicating this was 1 hour or less. Most respondents (98%) reported that they believe patients experience adverse events because of inadequate handoffs, and more than one third had witnessed a patient safety issue...

Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics in outpatient pediatrics remains a significant issue and there is limited evidence on how to effectively implement outpatient stewardship interventions. This study examines the relationship between readiness to change and modifiable factors affecting success of a primary care network antibiotic stewardship intervention. A survey designed to measure readiness to accept a health care innovation was administered to 209 clinicians. Practices were split in half into "high" versus "low" readiness to change...

The Institute of Medicine has noted that a key factor underlying patient safety problems in the United States is a paucity of quality and safety training programs for clinicians. The Greater New York Hospital Association and United Hospital Fund created the Clinical Quality Fellowship Program (CQFP) to develop quality improvement leaders in the New York region. The goals of this article are to describe the CQFP's structure and curriculum, program participants' perceived value, improvement projects, and career paths...

Veterans are often transferred from "spoke" Veterans Administration (VA) clinics or hospitals to "hub" tertiary VA hospitals for advanced inpatient care, but they face significant barriers to safe transitions home. The Transitions Nurse Program was developed as an intervention to address the unique needs of this population. A difference-in-differences (DiD) analysis was used to compare outcomes between 303 veterans enrolled in this program and veterans transferred from the same spoke sites to a second, similar tertiary VA hub...

When used in appropriate patient populations, fast-track extubation (FTE) anesthetic techniques and intensive care unit (ICU) protocols safely reduce intubation times, ICU length of stay, and resource utilization. The authors hypothesized that perioperative provider debriefing on success or failure of FTE would improve FTE success. This retrospective observational study included consecutive patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), valve, or combined CABG/valve surgery between February 2015 and May 2016 (N = 313)...

This study compares risk-standardized mortality rates (RSMRs) of patients with acute myocardial infarction among tertiary A (typically, advanced urban hospitals with more than 800 beds), tertiary B (urban hospitals with more than 500 beds), and secondary A hospitals (rural and urban hospitals with less than 500 beds) in Shanxi, China. In all, 43 500 acute myocardial infarction inpatient records from 93 hospitals were included. Hierarchical logistic regression was used to estimate RSMRs, and Dunn's post hoc test was used to make pairwise comparisons of RSMR between hospital levels...

Exogenous noise has deleterious effects on the developing fetus and infant. The aim of this quality improvement project was to lower the mean ambient noise level within a level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by 10% from the baseline in one year. Multiple noise reduction strategies were tested through Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement model for improvement. Strategies targeted environmental and behavioral modifications. Noise levels were recorded continuously; means and peaks were calculated...
