Throughout the past two weeks, more than 200 hospital professionals representing 80 hospitals gathered to launch the program at the Missouri HEN Kickoff Conference in Osage Beach, Mo., and the Missouri HEN Early Elective Deliveries Kickoff in Jefferson City, Mo. The Missouri HEN is part of the American Hospital Association’s Health Research & Education Trust’s Hospital Engagement Network under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Partnership for Patients campaign.
