MedStar Health, Inc. Key Developments

Federal Agency Selects Medstar Health for Healthcare Research and Quality to Participate in its Research Network Known as Action III

MedStar Health has been selected by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to participate in its research network known as ACTION III (Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks). MedStar is one of just 13 healthcare organizations to win the five-year award. As part of this network, MedStar has become eligible to become a direct contractor with the federal government to undertake research focused on one or more of AHRQ's priorities: Improve the quality of health care and care delivery. With 10 hospitals, 20 diversified healthcare entities, more than 200 service locations, and 6,000 physicians, MedStar Health provides care to one of the most culturally and socioeconomically diverse areas in the United States. MedStar has nationally recognized research experts in the MedStar Health Research Institute, the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare, the MedStar Institute for Innovation, and the MedStar Institute for Quality and Safety. The Research Institute continues to be among the top 20% of U.S. institutions receiving funds from the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies. MedStar is already engaged in AHRQ's ACTION II network, through a partnership with the Healthcare Research and Educational Trust, in a project called CANDOR (Communications and Optimal Resolution). CANDOR involves developing and testing an educational toolkit to help hospitals respond to, defuse and quickly resolve potential patient harm situations. In responding to the highly competitive bid process, MedStar organized its own network that includes 22 partners from outside the health system, including universities, foundations, a health department, hospital association, patient safety organizations, and a startup incubator.

Through the new alliance with Cerner, MedStar plans to further the work of the MedStar Institute for Innovation by aligning more closely around technology innovation. MedStar cares for more than a half million patients each year across Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region in its hospitals, urgent care and ambulatory care facilities, and physician offices. As the larger healthcare provider in Maryland and the Washington, D.C., region, MedStar's 10 hospitals, the MedStar Institute for Innovation, MedStar Physician Partners, and other programs and services are recognized regionally and nationally for excellence in medical care. Many of MedStar's hospitals are continuously recognized as Best Hospitals by U.S.News and World Report. Recently, the health system also was named one of the nation's Most Wired by Hospital and Health Networks Magazine.
