              Objectives:
                 o Keep patients from getting injured or sicker. By
                      the end of 2013, preventable hospital-acquired conditions would
                      decrease by 40% compared to 2010. Achieving this goal would
                      mean approximately 1.8 million fewer injuries to patients with
                      more than 60,000 lives saved over three years.

                 o Help patients heal without complication.                    By the
                      end of 2013, preventable complications during a transition from
                      one care setting to another would be decreased so that all
                      hospital readmissions would be reduced by 20% compared to
                      2010. Achieving this goal would mean more than 1.6 million
                      patients would recover from illness without suffering a
                      preventable complication requiring re-hospitalization within 30
                      days of discharge.
