PfP - IMPAQ International National Content Developer (NCD)

As a partner to IMPAQ International, Cynosure Health is supporting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Improvement Innovation Networks (HIINs), a $347 million effort involving 16 national, regional, state hospital associations and health system organizations. The goals of the HIINs are to reduce overall patient harm by 20 percent and hospital readmissions by 12 percent by the end of 2019.

Under the National Content Developer (NCD) project, Cynosure Health will work closely with IMPAQ to develop and lead several “Pacing Events,” designed to engage, inform, and drive action across the HIINs. Cynosure Health is proud to have a continuing role on the national Partnership for Patients Program, which has resulted in an estimated 2.1 million fewer patient harms, 87,000 lives saved, and nearly $20 billion in cost savings since 2010 (source:

The expertise the Cynosure team brought to our hospitals is invaluable and greatly appreciated. From my personal standpoint, the skills I personally obtained from the team are enormous and will benefit me for the rest of my career. Because of my exposure to the Cynosure team, I am a better listener, observer and facilitator from watching the team in action. I have learned to listen and observe the audience and, because of the improved facilitating skills, I have the confidence to interject and I did not possess this before.Michelle D. Smith, Project Manager, Louisiana Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation

Barbara DeBaun was a tremendous asset to planning our event, providing concrete, experience-based ideas to meet our objectives. Her enthusiasm and commitment combined with expert knowledge made her presentations highly effective….and great fun!Karol G. Wicker, MHS, Maryland Hospital Association

"Cynosure Health has wonderful teachers and motivators working to help improve healthcare across the country."Nancy Moss, RN, Benewah Community Hospital

Dr. Tremain has a way of taking something very complicated and reminds us to “keep it simple”. Somehow when you are done listening to the way he has it structured with the facility stories and his practical presentations you feel like you CAN take down a mountain with a spoon…" Kristine Brockman BS, ATC, CPHQ
