Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

Creating a Foundation for Safe and Reliable Care

The Creating a Foundation for Safe and Reliable Care APSS Blueprint outlines actionable steps healthcare organizations should take to successfully implement and sustain behavior change for high reliability, shared understanding, thorough communication, and meaningful person-centered care across the organization. Actionable steps to create meaningful culture change are included:

  • Leadership checklist guide to determine whether current evidence-based guidelines are being followed in your organization
  • Performance improvement plan to follow if improvements are necessary
  • Clinical workflow for preoccupation with workflow for areas of improvement
  • How to educate patients and family members about the significance of their role throughout the continuum
  • Guidance on how to measure outcomes

The blueprint is revised annually and is available free of charge on our website.

Hospitals who make a formal commitment to improve the culture of their organization and share their successes on the PSMF website have access to an additional level of consulting services.
