The Goal: ZERO Preventable Patients Deaths by 2020

At the Patient Safety Movement, we believe that ZERO preventable deaths by 2020 is not just a worthy goal. With the right people, ideas, and technology, it’s an attainable goal. Many of the pieces of this puzzle already exist. Solving this problem is a matter of connecting the dots of patient safety.

The Patient Safety Movement is working to connect these dots in a number of ways: by collaborating and breaking down information silos that exist between hospitals, medical technology companies, the government, and other stakeholders; by promoting the sharing of data that can identify at-risk patients before they’re in danger; and by providing specific, actionable solutions that healthcare professionals can implement today so we can reach our goal together.

We are the Patient Safety Movement. Join us today so that patients can live tomorrow.

The Patient Safety Movement Mission


Our ultimate goal is to get to ZERO preventable deaths by 2020!

  1. Unify the healthcare ecosystem (hospitals, healthcare technology companies, government, patient advocates, clinicians, engineers, etc.)
  2. Identify the challenges that are killing patients to create actionable solutions (Actionable Patient Safety Solution)
  3. Ask hospitals to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)
  4. Promote transparency and aligned incentives
  5. Ask healthcare technology companies to share the data their devices generate in order to create a Patient Data Super Highway to help identify at-risk patients
  6. Promote patient dignity & love
  7. Empower providers, medical, nursing & pharmacy students, patients and families on patient safety.
