"The Michigan hospitals that participate in the MHA Keystone Center programs have achieved significant, measurable patient safety improvements -- lives have been saved and errors have been reduced," said Spencer Johnson, president of the MHA. "We are pleased to see the success of the MHA Keystone Center hospitals serve as a beacon for other hospitals across the nation. We look forward to sharing best practices and future learnings from other MHA Keystone Center collaboratives already in progress."

Recently, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) announced an expansion of its commitment to patient safety and health care quality activities through a $6 million, five-year investment in activities by the MHA Keystone Center. This investment from BCBSM was the second of its kind to MHA Keystone Center in less than four years.

"Statewide collaborations under the banner of the MHA Keystone Center have been instrumental in Michigan's growing national reputation as a destination for world class health care," said BCBSM President & CEO Daniel J. Loepp. "The partnership between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, the MHA Keystone Center and Michigan hospitals is the best example of how collaboration between health plans, hospitals, doctors and other medical professionals can positively affect patient outcomes."

The MHA Keystone: ICU project improves safety and reduces medical errors in hospital ICUs by reducing central line-associated bloodstream infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia and enhancing communication and culture among clinicians. In four years, the project resulted in nearly

1,800 lives saved, 129,000 excess hospital days prevented and $247 million in medical costs avoid
