The Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s Midyear Planning Meeting, co-convened with the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, will take place on July 13th, 2017, at the Inova Center for Personalized Health. This full-day “working meeting” will be comprised of several break-out sessions structured for shared learning on existing Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). Each session will encourage opportunities for APSS revision, will work to ensure each APSS represents best clinical practices to date and will determine long-term expectations and goals as the Movement progresses further. This meeting will also include new topics pertinent to patient safety, will emphasize the importance of increased transparency and aligned incentives, as well as the integrity of data reported by hospitals making Commitments to the Patient Safety Movement Foundation in order to reach our goal of zero preventable deaths by 2020. We hope to see you there.

Joe Kiani is responsible for creating the Patient Safety Movement Foundation & Coalition and the Patient Safety Science & Technology Summit. Mr. Kiani founded the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) in 2013 with a mission to reduce the more than 200,000 preventable patient deaths that occur in U.S. hospitals every year. Under Mr. Kiani’s leadership, the Patient Safety Movement held the first Patient Safety Science & Technology Summit in January 2013 with President Clinton as the keynote speaker. Mr. Kiani has convened hundreds of leading clinicians, hospital CEOs, and medical technology CEOs from around the globe and at this Summit, launched an aggressive goal – ZERO patient deaths by 2020.
The Foundation is breaking down the silos between hospitals, medical technology companies, doctors, engineers and families of patients who have died needlessly. The mission of the PSMF is to: 1) Unify the healthcare ecosystem 2) Identify the challenges that are killing patients to create actionable solutions 3) Ask hospitals to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions 4) Promote transparency 5) Ask med tech companies to share the data their devices generate to create a Patient Data Super Highway and help identify at-risk patients 6) Correct misaligned incentives, and 7) Promote love and patient dignity.
As the founder, Chairman, and CEO of Masimo Corporation, a global medical technology innovator, Mr. Kiani has been a beacon for patient safety and innovation in healthcare for more than 20 years.
