Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US, killing more people than highway accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS. Between 380,000 and 450,000 preventable adverse drug events (ADEs) occur annually in the US. On any given day, about one in 25 hospital patients has at least one healthcare-associated infection. Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients fall in healthcare facilities, with 30-50 percent resulting in injury. Improving patient safety is a vital initiative for all healthcare facilities.This library focuses on creating better patient outcomes and is a valuable tool for hospitals seeking to lessen the financial impacts of risk exposures and unforeseen events. With the move to value-based care, provider’s focus is shifting from care and reimbursements based on quantity toward care and reimbursements based on quality. Patient safety issues negatively affect the quality of patient care, patient outcomes and the bottom line of healthcare organizations. The SafetyQ Patient Safety Library is designed to prevent medical errors and other undesired harmful effects resulting from technology, medication or interventions such as surgery or treatments. The focus is on creating a culture of safety, national patient safety issues, and quality reimbursement goals defined by government and accrediting body standards.
