Organization Founder and Masimo CEO Joe Kiani opened the Patient Safety Movement midyear planning meeting this morning at the Innova Fairfax Medical Campus in Washington DC. He reminded the 100+ professionals in attendance about the mission of the patient safety movement to reduce deaths due to medical error to zero by 2020. The hashtag for the day’s events are #0x2020 #2016mpm. Joe reported that since the movement began over 1700 hospitals and 59 medtech companies have pledged patient safety changes which will save almost 25,000 lives annually.

Today’s goal Joe said was to “brainstorm and select the Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS) for the next Patient Safety Movement Summit” taking place February 2017 in Dana Point, California.

Charles Murphy MD CPSS, Chief Patient Safety Officer of the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, introduced the days events:

  • Team Training to Improve Patient Safety By Dr. Murphy
  • The Use of Simulation in Improve Patient Safety By Dr. Marko, Director of Inova Center for Advanced Medical Simulation
  • Legislative Front: Improving Quality and Patient Safety by Rhode Island Senator Whitehouse
  • Communication for Safety by Dr. Dagi, Chairman of the Council in Surgical and Preoperative Care
  • Human Factors Engineering by Dr. Fairbanks, Director for the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare at Medstar
  • Principles of High Reliability Organizations by Dr. Betzelos, Chief Medical Officer of Inova Fairfax Medical Campus
  • Systems Engineering by Mr. Grant, Chief Engineer of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab
  • Keynote Speaker: Dr. Shuren, Director for the center for Devices and Radiological Health, U.S. Food & Drug Administration

Dr. Emily Marko, MD FACOG, Medical Director of the Inova Center for Advanced Medical Simulation provided a presentation about the use of simulation in patient safety starting with highlights from her center. Dr. Marko broke down the types of simulation training and equipment to demonstrate the potential for experiential learning. She reminded the audience that simulation covers a majority of the issues related to patient safety including: team training, team communication, skills acquisition and more.

Emily shared various simulation success stories from Inova including:

  • Four-fold reduction of neonatal injuries and improve teamwork in decision making.
  • 38% reduction to start compressions
  • Improvement in the reduction of hospital induced medical infections

Dr. Marko also highlighted a video from the Inova Simulation Center covering an OB/GYN shoulder dystocia simulation scenario:

At the end of today, audience members will vote on the topics for action at the 2017 event — and I think you know what will be voting for!

Patient Safety Movement Meets in Washington DC to Plan 2017 Event

psm patient safety congresss mid year

This full-day meeting, co-convened by the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, will consist of two morning sessions and an afternoon session. The meeting will commence with a general session of lectures and discussions led by patient safety experts.

In the afternoon, each of the twelve Actionable Patient Safety Solution (APSS) workgroups will report on their recent revisions and future plans. The day will end with the annual nomination and selection of new patient safety challenges that will be addressed at the 2017 World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. A networking reception will follow the program so that attendees can connect with one another and share patient safety-related ideas before they go back to their own institutions.

The goal of the meeting is to provide attendees with an opportunity to hear from leading patient safety experts on timely topics, encourage a productive dialogue about proposed updates and revisions to the APSS, and finally, identify patient safety challenges for the 2017 Summit.

2016 Patient Safety Movement Summit Shared Challenges and Solutions for Zero Preventable Deaths by 2020

patient safety movement

At the Patient Safety Movement earlier this year the audience of patient advocates, industry representatives, media, and healthcare professionals met near Laguna Beach to address the issue of preventable medical errors in healthcare. The organization was founded in 2012 by Joe Kiani and medical device manufacturer Masimo. Former President Bill Clinton provided the keynote address inspiring attendees to continue the mission of zero preventable deaths by 2020. As simulation’s end goal is the improvement of learning outcomes and patient safety outcomes, HealthySim will be sharing some of the moments captured during this event over the next month. HealthySim hopes this will highlight the opportunity for the growing global healthcare simulation community to better connect with the Patient Safety Movement to foster excellence and collaborative in healthcare training. Today in this first video a highlight of the 2016 Summit:

The Patient Safety Movement Mission

A disconnected understanding of the patient and appropriate care pathway has a devastating impact in both lives and costs. Saving lives and helping to prevent the more than 200,000 preventable patient deaths each year can largely be addressed by connecting the dots between current processes and procedures and proven solutions that are available today. By bringing the medical technologies and IT infrastructure together with relevant information, intelligent and predictive algorithms, and decision support that facilitate process of care improvements, physicians and patients could be informed of dangerous trends, lives could be saved, and costs could be dramatically reduced. Getting to ZERO will take all of us working together – clinicians, administrators, medical technology companies, payers, government, and patients.

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was created to aggressively address this problem. The Foundation is breaking down the silos between hospitals, medical technology companies, doctors, engineers, and families of patients who have died needlessly. The mission of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is to do the following:

  1. Unify the healthcare ecosystem
  2. Identify the challenges that are killing patients to create actionable solutions
  3. Ask hospitals to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions
  4. Promote transparency
  5. Ask med tech companies to share the data their devices generate in order to create a Patient Data Super Highway to help identify at-risk patients
  6. Correct misaligned incentives
  7. Promote love and patient dignity
  8. Empower providers, patients, and families through education of medical terminology and medical errors so they may better advocate for their loved ones.

And ultimately get to ZERO preventable deaths by 2020!

2016 World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit

The 4th Annual Summit brought together leaders from healthcare organizations, the healthcare industry, the patient advocacy community, and public policy makers to discuss solutions to the leading challenges causing preventable death in hospitals.

This year the event received commitments from organizations representing 1,631 hospitals that have collectively saved 24,643 lives. The group also announced the winners of our first ever Patient Safety Innovation Award competition as well as their annual Humanitarian Awards.
