The initial group of hospitals who will be chosen to participate will be institutions who demonstrate readiness, commitment, and capacity to be a leading hospital for quality service delivery related to hemorrhage. This survey will be used to determine the first hospitals to participate in implementing the collaborative initiative.
We are seeking a cadre of hospitals in various settings across the state, representing all sizes and levels. In order to be considered for this initiative, each hospital must commit to obtaining active participation from a hospital administrator and a physician and nurse who will serve as project champions. The Collaborative will offer materials, training and technical assistance to those hospitals chosen to participate in this phase at no charge to the hospital. The hospital commitment will be for a period of 18 to 24 months with implementation of core recommendations beginning in October 2013. The hospital will set local priorities and determine which tools to adopt or adapt from a toolkit to be provided.
