The 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit will bring together international leaders from hospitals, medical and information technology companies, the patient advocacy community, public policy makers and government officials to discuss solutions to the leading challenges that cause preventable patient death in hospitals.
The 2017 Summit will feature keynote addresses from leading political figures and patient safety experts, plenary sessions with healthcare luminaries, members of the press and patient advocates, as well as announcements from organizations making their own commitments to ZERO preventable deaths by 2020 (0X2020).
This is an invitation only event and a limited number of tickets are available.
Our annual midyear planning meeting was the largest to date bringing together over 100 medical experts, administrators, patient advocates and government officials for presentations and discussions on patient safety. For the first time, the Foundation held the meeting outside of California and co-convened with the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute in Falls Church, Virginia.
The meeting is the venue for the annual nomination and selection of new patient safety challenges, or topics where patient death can be prevented if proper protocols are followed by hospital staff. By addressing new challenges and forming Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) we believe we can reduce the number of preventable deaths in hospitals to ZERO by 2020. The group voted on fifteen nominated challenges and three were selected to be the focus at the 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit.
