THA Hospital Improvement Innovation Network—HIIN (Previously HEN)—Commit Now

Because of the tremendous success of the Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network (HEN), CMS has renewed the program for an additional 36 months under a new name, HIIN—Hospital Improvement Innovation Network.

While THA has been an independent HEN since 2011, THA elected to apply for the continued contract with the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Research Education Trust (HRET), to be able to bring added benefit to our network of hospitals. As part of the HRET HIIN, THA joins 31 other state hospital associations and a network of over 1,700 hospitals.

The transition to THA HIIN will be seamless for hospitals, as there is no lag between programs, and the data measures are consistent. THA HIIN hospitals will continue to enjoy the same benefits of belonging to THA’s network but will now have access to national experts and resources, evidence-based bundles and toolkits, state and national benchmarking, and other features.

THA needs hospitals to confirm their membership in the THA HIIN by signing a commitment form. A link to benefits of membership is below with a HRET HIIN flyer.
