The 2018 Delaware Valley Patient Safety & Quality Award call for entries officially closed last week on Tuesday, July 17. This year’s award program garnered twenty-nine submissions from ten regional PPC-contributing organizations. Thirty-four review panelists serving as clinical and administrative leaders from area hospitals have begun scoring the submissions based on criteria that looks at an initiative’s efforts in advancing patient care regarding innovation, collaboration, and ease of replication. Come early August, review panelists will have narrowed down the submissions to the top ten and from there the Selection Committee’s eleven members will score the top ten entries to determine the top three winners. Winners will be announced at the Southeast Connect event on November 2, 2018. We encourage those interested in the Delaware Valley Patient Safety & Quality Award program to stop by the website to find the past four year’s top three winners’ submissions and videos highlighting their initiatives.
