The Goal: Zero Preventable Patients Deaths by 2020

 

At the Patient Safety Movement, we believe that zero preventable deaths by 2020 is not just a worthy goal. With the right people, ideas, and technology, it’s an attainable goal. Many of the pieces of this puzzle already exist. To a large extent, solving the problem is a matter of connecting the dots of patient safety.

 

The Patient Safety Movement is working to connect these dots in a number of ways: by collaborating and breaking down information silos that exist between hospitals, medical technology companies, the government, and other stakeholders; by promoting the sharing of data that can identify at-risk patients before they’re in danger; and by providing specific, actionable solutions that healthcare professionals can implement today we can reach our goal together.
