A total of 150 hospitals that are members of the San Diego-based Premier Inc. alliance will participate in a new three-year program to test companys new health care technologies.
Hospitals participating in the Quest Supplier Innovation Program will measure the effectiveness of new technologies against an established set of five measurements: mortality ratio, evidence-based care, efficiency, patient experience and harm avoidance.
The hospitals will share data and best practices with each other, and ultimately establish new benchmarks for hospital performance.
The free program is open to health care I.T. vendors, suppliers, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and service providers. Interested companies should submit specific details about their technology innovations, including product attributes, performance measurement criteria, research and data analysis, testimonials and an overview of how they anticipate the technology would perform on the core measures
Applications, which will be reviewed by Quest participating hospitals, must be received by May 30. To submit an application, go to premierinc.com.
