Systems That Learn for Improving Patient Care
We introduced a new patient safety standard that has reduced the number of MRSA infections by more than 40% in our facilities.
Our scale enables us to study large numbers of patients in a relatively short amount of time. So when the medical community was looking for new ways to prevent deadly MRSA infections, we implemented a study involving 330,000 patients across 43 of our hospitals. What we learned resulted in a new standard that has reduced MRSA infections by more than 40% in our facilities.
