LifePoint Health, Inc. Launches Quality Designation Program in Collaboration with Duke University Health System, Inc

LifePoint Health, Inc. and Duke University Health System have advanced their quality collaboration through the launch of the Duke LifePoint Quality Affiliate designation program. This designation recognizes hospitals operated by subsidiaries of LifePoint that have enrolled in the LifePoint National Quality Program and succeeded in transforming their culture of safety and achieving high standards of quality care, performance improvement and patient engagement. Clark Regional Medical Center in Winchester, Ky., was named the first hospital to receive Duke LifePoint Quality Affiliate designation. The LifePoint National Quality Program was created through a quality collaboration bringing together experts from LifePoint and Duke to enhance patient safety and improve quality care. This collaboration is built upon a decade-long relationship between LifePoint and Duke that has expanded and evolved throughout the years, leading to the creation of the Duke LifePoint Healthcare joint venture and Duke’s involvement in LifePoint’s Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) from December 2011 to December 2014.

Lifepoint Hospitals Inc. and Duke University Health System Expands Partnership to Advance Healthcare Quality

LifePoint Hospitals and Duke University Health System have expanded their collaborative effort to create safe highly reliable care by entering into a national quality agreement. This collaboration will allow these two leading healthcare organizations to expand upon the work in which they have been engaged for several years to enhance patient safety and continually improve the quality of care across the nation. Through the new national quality affiliation, all LifePoint hospitals will be part of a program designed to focus their improvement efforts and transform their culture of safety. The collaboration between the two organizations began as a result of an existing clinical affiliation Duke had with Danville Regional Medical Center in Danville, Va., when LifePoint acquired the facility in 2005. In 2011, this successful alliance led to the creation of Duke LifePoint Healthcare, a joint venture that now operates 12 hospital campuses in four states. The first opportunity to advance shared quality and safety priorities nationwide came in December 2011 when LifePoint was named one of 26 organizations selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to serve as a Hospital Engagement Network (HEN). The HEN initiative was designed to identify and share best practice solutions to reduce healthcare-acquired conditions. As a subcontractor to LifePoints HEN, Duke University Health System and the Duke Patient Safety Center played significant roles in culture shaping and clinical performance improvement. The HEN program was part of the Department of Health and Human Services HHS Partnership for Patients initiative, a public-private collaboration to make hospital care safer, more reliable, and less costly. It had a goal of achieving a 40% decrease in healthcare-acquired conditions by the end of 2014. LifePoint exceeded this goal months in advance of the conclusion of the HEN program on December 8, 2014, and achieved performance measures significantly better than national benchmarks.
