For Immediate Release:
Nearly 200 New York healthcare providers join HANYS’ C2X℠ program, affirm their commitment to quality and patient safety
ALBANY, N.Y. — Hospitals, health systems and other healthcare provider organizations across the state are signing on to the Healthcare Association of New York State’s Commitment to Excellence program, affirming their commitment to continuous quality improvement, patient safety and performance excellence. In celebration of Healthcare Quality Week, HANYS is pleased to announce that nearly 200 facilities statewide have signed the C2X℠ pledge, including every member of the HANYS board of trustees.
Through this first-of-its-kind, comprehensive statewide consortium, New York’s healthcare providers demonstrate how they are working together to improve patient care, the patient experience and clinical and operational outcomes. C2X has a dynamic portfolio of programs, including preventing antibiotic resistance, opioid addiction prevention and management, creating a high-reliability culture and sepsis prevention and treatment.
“From nursing homes to small rural hospitals, suburban community facilities and urban academic medical centers, New York’s healthcare provider organizations demonstrate their unwavering Commitment to Excellence every day, for every patient,” said HANYS President Bea Grause, RN, JD. “C2X provides a forum for healthcare providers to learn and stay on the cutting edge of healthcare practices. Through this forum, they can use their collective knowledge, expertise and best practices to achieve healthcare excellence.”
Participating healthcare providers demonstrate their commitment through involvement in educational and quality improvement actions, having quality improvement programs with governing board and/or senior leadership oversight, using evidence-based practices, analyzing performance data and sharing success stories.
C2X is coordinated by HANYS Quality Advocacy, Research and Innovation, the association’s center for quality improvement. QARI helps New York’s hospitals and health systems prioritize, manage and sustain initiatives that improve patient care and outcomes.
The Healthcare Association of New York State is the only statewide hospital and continuing care association in New York, representing non-profit and public hospitals, nursing homes, home care agencies and other healthcare organizations.
