Standardization is key!
Standardization of health care processes has been shown to improve outcomes and quality of care. As women’s health care providers, we must come together to ensure that every care setting has a systematic and comprehensive framework for care delivery.
The Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care disseminates patient safety bundles to help reduce variation and facilitate the standardization process.
You can get started on improving outcomes by implementing patient safety bundles at your facility.
Patient Safety Bundles
A concept introduced by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, a bundle is a structured way of improving care processes and patient outcomes.
Our patient safety bundles do not introduce new guidelines but are built upon established best-practices. They are designed to collate a critical set of processes based on the broad universe of existing guidance, tools, and resources that have been developed by trusted organizations.
Our bundles are designed to be universally implementable and able to be consistently used across disciplines and settings.
Implementing A Bundle
Any facility can implement a patient safety bundle. Some states and health care systems are also eligible to participate in the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Program.
Before you begin implementing on your own, find out if you practice in an AIM state or system and can receive implementation and data support here.
