Allan L. Cohn, CPHQ

Allan has a proven track record of developing and implementing processes designed to improve performance, increase efficiency, ensure regulatory compliance, reduce cost, and increase customer satisfaction in a wide range of industries and functional areas including: Healthcare, Call Center Operations, Information Technology, Research & Development, Purchasing, Manufacturing and Government Affairs.
At Cleveland Clinic Children's, Allan worked closely with Dr. Hupertz to establish overall governance for quality, patient experience, and safety efforts for all Cleveland Clinic pediatric locations.
During his time at Cleveland Clinic Childrens, employee reporting of safety risks increased by 60% with a corresponding 90% decrease in serious safety events, including over ten years without a serious harm medication safety event. They achieved a 40% reduction in central line associated blood stream infections, a 20% reduction in all cause readmissions and a 10-percentage point improvement in physician communication top box performance.
Allan established a Family Engagement team that ensured the voice of the parent and patient was involved in all Cleveland Clinic Childrens strategic initiatives including new facility design, partnering families with newly diagnosed conditions with other families, and creation of Speak Up for Safety empowering parents and caregivers to stop the line any time they have a concern.
Allan received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1979. He is a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ) and a Certified Six Sigma Black Belt & Champion,
