Hospital Engagement Network (HEN 2.0)

The hospital engagement network has a purpose in improving quality and patient safety in hospitals. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has expressed interest in continuing the work to reduce harm and preventable readmissions by releasing a Request for Proposal for HEN 2.0 in support of the Partnership for Patients (PfP) campaign (a public-private partnership working to improve the quality, safety and affordability of health care for all Americans). HEN 2.0 will continue the work of the original HEN project and support hospital-level improvement to achieve the national goals of reducing all cause preventable harm by 40 percent and readmission by 20 percent.
