Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) cause major patient harm, preventable through attention to line care best practice standards. The objective was to determine if a digital self-assessment application (CLABSI App), bundling line care best practices with social gamification and in-context microlearning, could engage nurses in CLABSI prevention. Nurses caring for children with indwelling central venous catheters in 3 high-risk units were eligible to participate. All other units served as controls...

Hospitals contracting with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) must comply with Conditions of Participation (CoP), enforced by 4 certified independent accrediting organizations (AOs) or individual state survey. Recent work documents that the system fails to achieve consistent clinical outcomes, allowing several-fold variation in mortality and patient safety. Other publicly reported evidence shows weaker clinical performance by state-surveyed hospitals, inexplicable variation in individual state surveys, and recurring disagreement between initial and audit surveyors...

Jennifer L Rosenthal, Robert Doiron, Sarah C Haynes, Brock Daniels, Su-Ting T Li
Improving physician handoffs is a patient safety priority. The authors hypothesize that standardized handoff interventions during care transitions improve patient-related outcome measures. PubMed, Cochrane, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Embase, and Web of Science were searched for publications from 2000 to May 2016. Eligible studies compared standardized handoff intervention(s) with no standardized handoff intervention and measured patient-related outcomes. Studies were evaluated independently for eligibility for inclusion by at least 2 authors in a 2-stage process; 14 articles met inclusion criteria...

Sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited red blood cell disorder, is characterized by anemia, end-organ damage, unpredictable episodes of pain, and early mortality. Emergency department (ED) visits and hospitalizations are frequent, leading to increased burden on patients and increased health care costs. This study assessed the effects of a multidisciplinary care team intervention on acute care utilization among adults with SCD. The multidisciplinary care team intervention included monthly team meetings and development of individualized care plans...

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is the most widely used accrediting body of health plans, but no study has explored how differences in health quality affect the accreditation level. Consumers may benefit as they guide health insurance purchasing decisions toward a cost-quality evaluation. The authors conducted a multinomial logistic regression analysis using data from the 2015 NCQA Quality Compass of 351 health plans. This study's outcome variable represented NCQA accreditation at 3 levels: accredited, commendable, and excellent...

This study uses a national multi-payer claims database to test for differences in potentially inappropriate emergency department (ED) visits and ambulatory care sensitive (ACS) admissions in fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare and Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. Rates of ACS admissions for MA enrollees were approximately one third those of FFS beneficiaries, controlling for covariates, which included the beneficiary's health status as represented by their risk score. This study then compared FFS and MA beneficiaries when they moved from one type of health plan to another...

Jaeyong Bae, Kimberly J Rask, Edmund R Becker
The objective was to examine differential impacts between single-source and multiple-source electronic medical record (EMR) systems, as measured by number of vendor products, on hospital-acquired patient safety events. The data source was the 2009-2010 State Inpatient Databases of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project for California, New York, and Florida, and the Information Technology Supplement to the American Hospital Association's Annual Survey. Multivariable regression analyses were conducted to estimate the differential impacts of EMRs between single-source and multiple-source EMR systems on hospital-acquired patient safety events...
