Why a Patient Safety Organization?

There has been a delay in the patient safety march.  Why so?  Because we have yet to overcome the knowledge gap in how to get it done.  We have to be better at answering the question, “Why a Patient Safety Organization?”

The number of adverse events, death included, has changed little since the Institute of Medicine report of 10 years ago…100,000 deaths at a cost of $30B per year.

With databases full of quality/safety information and its analysis thereof, we should be able to make a difference.

We can gather the data.

We can analyze it.

We can make a difference.
