Never Events and Hospital Acquired Conditions
Therefore, the AAFP supports incentives for performance improvement including the implementation of robust systems to reduce reasonably preventable conditions. The Academy recommends the development of standard definitions for NE and HAC along with non-punitive reporting frameworks, such as the Patient Safety Organizations sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. In addition, the Academy recommends further research to delineate evidence-based practices that address such conditions in an actionable and scalable fashion for both inpatient and ambulatory settings.
