Are your innovative efforts in quality and safety improving patients’ lives? If so, it’s time to recognize you, Joint Commission officials say. Applications for the 2019 Eisenberg Awards are being accepted from August 19-October 1 and are available on The Joint Commission and National Quality Forum (NQF) websites.
The Eisenberg Awards represent the best of the healthcare industry—organizations from all over the United States working toward making sure every patient, every time, everywhere gets the quality of care and safety they deserve. The accomplishments of award nominees/applicants should be clearly linked to the principles that Dr. John M. Eisenberg—former director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality—promoted throughout his career. These include:

  • Dedication to improving the quality of healthcare and patient safety
  • Leadership in advancing methods for measuring and reporting healthcare quality
  • Expanding the public’s capacity to evaluate the quality and safety of healthcare
  • Promoting healthcare choices based upon information about safety and quality
