HAP Campaign Resources
Please find 2021 HAP Campaign downloadable materials below!
The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the two organ procurement organizations (OPOs) serving Pennsylvania—the Center for Organ Recovery & Education & Gift of Life Donor Program—to support HAP’s 2021 Donate Life Hospital Challenge. Hospital teams record clinical and community education events on a customized scorecard to capture activities for improving the clinical process and increasing donor designations. Hospitals will be acknowledged for their efforts by HAP and the OPOs for achieving Titanium, Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards.
Hospital leaders are asked to designate an individual to serve as your primary hospital contact & another individual to serve as your secondary hospital contact. Your designated primary hospital contact will be the point of contact for your hospital & HAP Challenge Team. Communication shared with the designated hospital contact should be shared with your team members, including invitations to register for the 2021 kickoff webinar. The individual serving as your secondary hospital contact also will receive all communications to ensure that your hospital team is kept informed.
Challenge runs from April 1 through April 30, 2021.
Available images include high-res versions of infographics, web banners, screensaver, and posters.
