Overview

January 23–24, 2015

The third annual Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit was a huge success. Several hundred doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, medical technology executives, and patient advocates learned that more than 500 hospitals and dozens of medical technology companies have joined the Patient Safety Movement and made commitments to reduce preventable patient deaths. Joe Kiani, founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, announced that ‘One Plus 6,411’ lives have been saved since hospitals began implementing a series of Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). Together, with all of us setting aside differences, we can reach the goal of ZERO preventable patient deaths by 2020.
