United States

Our work in the United States ranges from research identifying organizational factors associated with high-quality hospital and hospice care and improving health outcomes for patients with heart attacks to measuring the impact of social services on health in the U.S.

GHLI has been a key partner in the Door-to-Balloon Alliance to reduce delays between hospital arrival and life-saving treatment, and the Hospital-to-Home Initiative, which focused on reducing cardiovascular-related hospital readmissions. GHLI also partners with The Medicines Company in the Leadership Saves Lives program to support hospitals in improving organizational culture and ultimately lower mortality related to heart attacks.

GHLI continues to identify strategies across the U.S. to reduce institutional care costs such as hospitalization and controlled Medicare expenditures. Through site visits and interviews with hospital staff and social service providers, GHLI researchers determine tools and processes to lower costs related to health and social services.
