The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announced today that former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver the keynote address on the first day of the 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit to be held February 3rd & 4th 2017.
“We are honored to have Vice President Biden join us again and provide the keynote on the first day of our Summit,” stated Joe Kiani, Founder and Chairman of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. “Vice President Biden has been a longtime supporter of the Patient Safety Movement and has transformed cancer research and collaboration. We hope one day due to his work, deaths due to cancer will be as preventable as deaths due to medical errors in hospitals.”
Last year, Patient Safety Movement awarded President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden the Humanitarian Award for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Acts (ACA). Not only has their work allowed more people to have access to healthcare, but through the new payment incentives, over 125,000 lives have been saved from preventable deaths.
