“On December 14, 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded $218 million to 26 State, regional and national hospital system organizations to serve as Hospital Engagement Networks.  The contracts were part of the Partnership for Patients, a nationwide public-private collaboration sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to keep patients from being harmed while in the hospital and heal without complication once they are discharged.

The Hospital Engagement Networks’ will be funded as part of the $500 million Partnership for Patients initiative from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Center.  The Center was established by the Affordable Care Act to identify and develop promising new models of care delivery to reduce costs and increase quality.”
