2022 Stronger - P111 - Interprofessional Leadership and Collaboration Leads to Reduction in Pressure Injuries - On Demand
A Lean continuous improvement approach supported by strong institutional leadership resulted in a 50% reduction in hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) at UMass Memorial Medical Center. A focused collaborative, a series of data-driven interventions and process changes drove the reduction. Every point of care, from initial patient contact through discharge and coding, generated interprofessional opportunities that contributed to this significant reduction in HAPI. Relentless and structured pursuit of multiple simultaneous opportunities, driven by the Performance Improvement Safer Team, supported bedside caregivers as they implemented successful and sustainable change.
