About the Patient Safety Movement Foundation
Improving patient safety requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payors. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems and solutions of patient safety. Preventable medical errors lead to more than 200,000 deaths in US hospitals every year leading to $1.44 trillion in excess healthcare costs. The PSMF supports Patient Safety through a variety of means including:
- Actionable Solutions: Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) serve as powerful and efficient tools to help guide healthcare professionals toward practices that decrease preventable patient deaths in hospitals.
- Impact: In 2018, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation held its 6th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit and announced the impact we’ve made connecting the dots across the globe.
- Partnerships: Fostering relationships with like-minded individuals is the driving force that makes our mission to reach zero preventable deaths conceivable.
Joe Kiani explains, “Hospitals that make the commitment to eliminate preventable patient deaths and are transparent about their progress are arguably safer than those that haven’t made the commitment and aren’t measuring. Thanks to the commitment of our 4600 hospitals globally, we are seeing regular improvements in patient safety and thus fewer lives saved due to their ongoing efforts.”
Want to have your organization support the Patient Safety Movement? Join the 4,500+ international hospitals and help us improve patient safety and reduce preventable deaths. By making a commitment, your hospital stands in solidarity with us that we can only achieve ZERO preventable deaths by engaging all hospitals.
