Categories: Blog

TOPEKA, KS (February 7, 2020) – Midland Care Connection has been named an Honor Roll recipient in the inaugural round of the John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge, a national innovation and quality improvement challenge sponsored by The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC)  and The John A. Hartford Foundation. The Challenge is the cornerstone of a five-year campaign aimed at creating a tipping point in the improvement of care delivered to millions of Americans living with a serious illness. Over 1500 organizations participated.

The goal of the first Tipping Point Challenge was to help health care organizations expand the ability to effectively care for seriously ill patients by enhancing skills among clinicians in all medical specialties treating serious illness. These include communication, pain management, and symptom management skills directed at the complex needs of people living with serious illness.

From 1500 participating health care organizations, 24 organizations won the competition and another 71 achieved the Honor Roll. Many found that the competition challenged them to be more ambitious in their thinking and facilitated the spread of skills across specialties and disciplines. Organizations and leadership tackled the issue on an enterprise-level, enabling them to continue scaling improvement in the care they deliver to this patient population.
