Pledges

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announced today that 70 healthcare technology companies have now signed the PSMF’s Open Data Pledge to improve patient safety.

The 70 companies that have made the PSMF’s Open Data Pledge are committed to allowing access to the data generated by their medical devices for researchers and entrepreneurs that seek to improve patient monitoring and care. By sharing data from their products, in accordance with applicable patient privacy laws, these companies help further the development of predictive algorithms that can notify clinicians and patients of dangerous trends and thus enable earlier interventions.

“Predictive algorithms will be key in rapidly eliminating preventable patient deaths” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. “I am extremely grateful to the leaders of these 70 companies that are putting patients first by publicly signing the Open Data Pledge. These companies understand the urgency in what needs to be achieved and are leading the way in creating the patient data superhighway that will help us reach zero patient deaths by the year 2020.”

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation encourages healthcare technology companies to share the data that their products are purchased for. They do so without disclosing any proprietary algorithms or protected data, subject to applicable patient privacy laws. Companies can make their pledge online at http://patientsafetymovement.org/challenges-solutions/commitments-pledges/healthcare-technology-pledges/.

About The Patient Safety Movement

More than 200,000 people die every year in U.S. hospitals and 3 million worldwide in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare, to reduce that number of preventable deaths to 0 by 2020 (0X2020). Improving patient safety will require a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems with actionable solutions for patient safety. The Foundation also convenes the World Patient Safety, Science and Technology summit. The Summit brings together some of the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new ideas to challenge the status quo. By presenting specific, high-impact solutions to meet patient safety challenges, called Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data their products are purchased for, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, Patient Safety Movement is working toward zero preventable deaths by 2020.
