Potentially preventable events are encounters, which could be prevented, that lead to unnecessary services or contribute to poor quality of care. Texas Health and Human Services collects data on potentially preventable events and uses it to improve quality and efficiency. Potentially preventable events (PPEs) offer a set of outcome measures to monitor the progress of population health projects.
