Quality Initiatives and Health Care Reform
AORN will actively participate in health care delivery system improvements at the federal and state level to highlight and advance the role of the perioperative registered nurse in achieving optimal patient safety. AORN will also actively participate in federal and state discussions on health care change to promote standardized data collection at the point of service to substantiate improvements in patient safety and quality. AORN will collaborate with other organizations to advance positive health care improvements and quality initiatives affecting the operating room, but will not endorse specific candidates.
