VUMC is a founding member of the HOMERuN collaborative, which engages hospitalists, researchers, and hospital medicine groups at leading medical centers nationwide, accelerating the discovery and swift implementation of quality care improvements. Sunil Kripalani, MD, MSc, and Eduard Vasilevskis, MD, MPH, lead VUMC’s participation.
Projects include multi-site studies on the preventability of hospital readmissions; incidence, causes, and risk factors for diagnostic error in hospital settings (UPSIDE); and a large clinical collaborative on COVID-19. HOMERuN maintains an active Patient & Family Advisory Council, established under a Eugene Washington Award from PCORI.
