Using Technology to Improve Quality & Safety: A Pressure Ulcer Project

CMS has declined reimbursement for hospital acquired pressure ulcers (HAPUs) since 2008. A team of nurses successfully secured funding, used technology to measure outcomes, and converted Quality Improvement projects into comparative research. The application of the knowledge gained during the Quality Improvement comparative research cycle allowed UC Davis Health to lower their HAPU incidence while standardizing documentation and identifying those patients who are at highest risk for development of HAPU.
