pledge screen

 KHC is part of the Kansas Quality Improvement Partnership (KQIP), a group of leading Kansas health care organizations dedicated to improving quality and eliminating or reducing duplication of effort by Kansas providers. 

Among its current priorities, KQIP has established a goal that all Kansas healthcare settings and providers, animal and human, will actively promote the appropriate use of antibiotics through their antibiotic/antimicrobial stewardship programs and activities.  

We challenge all Kansas healthcare providers to take the #OneHealthKS Pledge and commit to working on this effort within your organization.

KDHE

KHC is pleased to work with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) on a variety of projects.


Kansas Quality Improvement Partnership

The Kansas Quality Improvement Partnership meets regularly to discuss opportunities for collaboration, and includes representatives from the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative, the Kansas Hospital Association, the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care, the Kansas Medical Society, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. These meetings provide an opportunity for strategic discussions about ways to complement each organization’s work, enhance hospital engagement, and maintain the integrity and reputation of our organizations through clear communication and messaging to hospitals.

KQIP recommends that all Kansas hospitals use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) in their efforts to reduce hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).
