Data is the lifeblood of healthcare technologies, but due to of a lack of interoperability, much of that valuable data isn’t captured or appropriately directed to the clinicians responsible for a patient’s safety.
To put an end to preventable patient deaths, this needs to change.
Right now, the Patient Safety Movement is calling on healthcare technology companies to unite the healthcare ecosystem, collaborate, and make the data generated by their instruments interoperable and accessible to clinicians and others responsible for patient safety.
To date, more than 100 respected healthcare technology companies and hospitals have answered the call and are working towards our goal – companies like GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, and Oracle. For their efforts, they are receiving public recognition, praise from their colleagues, and the deep gratitude of families that won’t fall victim to tragic statistics. These companies represent a changing marketplace where success is measured in lives saved and leaders are distinguished by their commitment to ZERO.
We urge your company to join the discussion by signing a (non-financial) Open Data Pledge. In addition, we invite you to the World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. The Summit has emerged as an important national conference where committed clinicians, innovative healthcare technologists, passionate patient advocates, and open-minded policymakers exchange ideas, challenge the status quo, establish patient safety protocols, and view the latest safety-oriented technologies.
