Capturing Success Stories
May 15 Event for Clinical & Financial Leaders


PfP HEN Reporting Database

The IHC Reporting Database for the HEN in 2014 will be open later this week. When it is released, an email will be sent to the main HEN contact at each hospital and the Nursing Leader recognized on the charter.  If you have any questions regarding the database, please email

Capturing Patient Safety/Quality HEN Success Stories

We are seeking to capture one success story from each hospital using the national resource Weber Shandwick. The goal is to identify stories that can help make hospital care safer, more reliable, and less costly.  Partnering with Weber Shandwick will allow us to capture the success stories in a standardized form that can be displayed with the network. Weber Shandwick is able to capture and scribe your content through a brief phone call, so it takes away the writing from you. Your Improvement Advisors and Nancy Thompson will be capturing this process, so please reach out to them with any questions.
