Quality Quarterly

Now is a Great Time to Enroll in HQI Cares: Implementing BETA HEART®   

Member hospitals are urged to consider joining HQI Cares: Implementing BETA HEART®, a state-of-the-art program to advance patient safety. Enrollment for 2024 is now open. 

Times are difficult for many hospitals. Fitch Ratings’ recent annual outlook report signaled that 2024 will be a “make or break” year for a significant portion of U.S. hospitals and health systems. California hospitals are no exception.  

In tough times like these, hospitals must re-commit to their “North Star” — an unwavering course toward excellence in patient safety and quality of care.   

When — if not now — should we endeavor to build a reliable and sustainable culture of safety? 

When — if not now — is a good time to take effective and proactive care of your caregivers? 

When — if not now — are we to respond to patient harm consistently, empathetically, and transparently? 

Many hospitals have already experienced the benefits of HQI Cares and are eager to share how the program has helped them empower and support their vital health care workforce. Contact Boris Kalanj, HQI’s director of programs, at bkalanj@hqinstitute.org to learn more.
