About Patient Safety Movement

More than 200,000 people die every year in U.S. hospitals and 4.8
million worldwide in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient
Safety Movement Foundation is a global non-profit which creates free
tools for patients and hospitals. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation
was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics,
Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare to reduce that number of
preventable deaths to ZERO. Improving patient safety will require a
collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients,
healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government,
employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation
works with all stakeholders to address the problems with actionable
solutions for patient safety. The Foundation also convenes the World
Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. The Summit brings together
some of the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new
ideas to challenge the status quo. By presenting specific, high-impact
solutions to meet patient safety challenges, called Actionable Patient
Safety Solutions, encouraging medical technology companies to share the
data their products are purchased for, and asking hospitals to make
commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, the
Patient Safety Movement Foundation is working toward ZERO preventable
deaths. Visit
