Awards and Grants
Promote Knowledge Sharing
Provide High Level Recognition
It is well established that organizations which reward process changes supporting high quality care are more likely to achieve and sustain such changes. AEIX demonstrates both support and encouragement of this practice through the AEIX Awards and Grants Program. Each year, the projects and accomplishments that positively impact safety and quality within our members’ organizations is recognized and celebrated.
Awards to member organizations for completed projects that have implemented effective practices that successfully promote patient safety or reduced liability, and can be shared as best practices with other AEIX members.
Grants for proposed projects which are designed to improve quality and patient safety, and that also yield measurable best practices that may be shared among the AEIX membership.
For more than a decade, the governing board of AEIX has fostered innovation and recognized the success of members’ efforts. The financial support provided through this program has awarded and facilitated the implementation of nearly one hundred projects since its inception. Recent grant and award recipients have focused on important issues such as:
- Decreasing post-surgical opiate use
- Improving outcomes using wearable technology
- Addressing unanticipated radiological results
Winning projects must focus on improving quality and patient safety or reducing liability, and must demonstrate measurable, reproducible results. Award winners are also provided an opportunity to share their projects on a national stage at Premier’s annual Breakthroughs Conference.
