The Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety
HANYS' Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety recognizes organizations that are playing a leading role in promoting health care delivery.
HANYS annual coordinates the Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety. The award triggers over 100 applications from members across the state. A panel of expert judges from outside New York State review and recommend the winners. A compendium of the success stories is then published annually. It includes chapters on clinical care, clinical operations, patient safety, and specialty care.
HANYS encourages its member to utilize the Pinnacle process to internally and externally highlight their success stories and achievements. In addition, the submissions can be use to garner ideas, best practices, network, and share. HANYS remain very proud of its member's accomplishments.
Pinnacle Award Changes Means New Submissions Process Beginning in 2013
HANYS is transitioning our Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety to focus on new quality improvement objectives, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Partnership for Patients (PFP) initiative goals. As a result, HANYS will not solicit applications for a 2012 Pinnacle Award. For 2013, a new process with the updated focus will be used.
