Take 5 for the John M. Eisenberg Award: Kaiser Permanente Northern California
We’re celebrating the 2021 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award recipients in this special Take 5 series. These awards recognize major achievements to improve patient safety and health care quality. There are three recipients each year: for an individual; an organization impacting quality care at a national level; and an organization impacting quality care at a local level.
In this episode, we are joined by Robin Betts, MBA-HM, RN, CPHQ, Vice President of Safety, Quality and Regulatory Services, Kaiser Permanente Northern California.
Kaiser Permanente received the Eisenberg Award for Innovation in Patient Safety and Quality at the Local Level for its Advance Alert Monitor. The initiative developed a predictive analytic scoring system that proactively identifies patients with a high risk of mortality or transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU), including integration of life care planning or palliative care.
