Metrics Integrity

As hospitals implement solutions to improve patient safety and make commitments around those successful process improvements, the Foundation supports by offering evidence-based metrics to measure lives spared from harm and lives saved.

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation convened a specific workgroup to work on recommended metrics for each of the Foundation’s Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). The Metrics Integrity workgroup has been meeting since 2015 and each year revises metrics, as needed, and builds new metrics based on evidence-based literature.

When hospitals join the Movement by making their commitment to improve patient safety these metrics are made available to help hospitals who may not be tracking their harm or mortality rates, or offer another method they may not be currently using in their facility.
