Our 5th Annual Midyear Planning Meeting was a huge success! The 2016 meeting was co-convened by the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute and featured presentations from leading medical experts on patient safety topics and reports from our Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) workgroups. Attendees also selected three new patient safety challenges which will be addressed at our upcoming Summit in 2017.
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.
Our ultimate goal is to get to ZERO preventable deaths by 2020!
