ACP-New York State Chapter partnership results in patient safety organization recognition
Date:6/7/2012

d more than 3,000 residents in internal medicine throughout the state. In later phases of the registry and education program, it was extended to all physicians and allied health professionals. An educational program for health care professionals outlining patient safety, system barriers and steps to identify near miss events was presented at more than 50 hospitals and professional societies across New York State. "Our goal is to change the culture of healthcare into one that learns from mistakes and shares best practices in patient safety," Dr. Fried said.

Building on this effort, ACP has joined forces with NYACP to expand the Near Miss Registry nationwide, including expansion to outpatient healthcare practices. It will link registry reports of near misses to educational resources that will help clinical teams strengthen patient safety through data-driven system improvements shown to be effective.

"NYACP's Near Miss Registry shows that doctors and other clinicians can both identify risks to patient safety and, learn how to better protect patients in the healthcare system," noted ACP Senior Vice President Dr. Michael Barr.

"National expansion of the program will give physicians and their clinical teams tools to better understand and redress safety challenges," said NYACP Executive Director Linda Lambert. "Patient safety and the prevention of medical errors is a top priority for NYACP. Through several phases of modeling and testing, the Near Miss Registry has proven that clinicians are willing and able to act on meaningful data that is evidence based."

"We know that clinicians and health care organizations want to participate in efforts to improve patient care, but they often are inhibited by fears of liability and sanctions," said AHRQ Director Carolyn M. Clancy, MD. "PSOs facilitate a shared-learning approach that supports effective interventions to reduce risk of harm to patients and improve quality."
