Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

Hand-off-Communications
Effective Communication

Poor hand-offs are where most patient safety implications occur, with hand-offs contributing to over 80% of adverse events. The consistency necessary throughout the patient journey, as well as throughout the hospital, is significant and can be enabled by organization-wide adoption of one method of communication. Our APSS Blueprints provide healthcare organizations with practical, evidence-based checklists and protocols to help hospitals adopt and effectively implement one consistent method of communication.
