HRET is pleased to announce the Improvement Leader Fellowship which will help us achieve our collective aim of reducing patient harm by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent by 2013. This program is designed for State Hospital Association leads and quality improvement champions at individual hospitals.

The aim of the Improvement Leader Fellowship Program is to build a cadre of front-line improvement leaders who will drive their hospital’s quality improvement projects. This program is also designed to provide State Hospital Association leads with the tools needed to support hospital efforts.

The Fellowship Program consists of face-to-face meetings and webinars that will instruct hospital leaders in the science of improvement, measurement, and culture/teamwork. The end result will be a team of front-line hospital improvement leaders armed with best practices to engage their teams, overcome challenges, and spread sustainable improvement strategies.
