Competing San Francisco Bay Area Hospitals Demonstrate That Collaborative Efforts Contribute to Reduced Hospital Errors and Saved Lives
Date:4/21/2008

study, "To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System," which estimated that as many as 98,000 people die each year due to medical errors. Since that time, Bay Area hospitals have increasingly participated in both voluntary and mandatory efforts to improve quality and patient safety, some of which include public reporting of quality information.

"The Bay Area is emerging as a leader in high quality patient care, but there is still more to be done," said Marybeth Sharpe, PhD, who leads the Moore Foundation's Betty Irene Moore Nursing Initiative, under which the Beacon program resides. "Beacon is a critical vehicle for helping hospitals develop the skills, systems, and cultures needed to safeguard against dangerous and avoidable medical errors."

Beacon's second annual quality colloquium, "Pathways to Excellence in Patient Safety & Quality," is scheduled for April 22, 2008 in South San Francisco. More than 600 physicians, nurses, administrators and other quality professionals are expected to attend. In addition to 21 workshops on patient safety improvement themes, two nationally known experts and a prominent consumer advocate will speak: Kathleen Sutcliffe, PhD, author of "Managing the Unexpected: Resilient Performance in an Age of Uncertainty," and Chip Heath, the N.Y. Times bestselling author of "Made To Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die." Also speaking will be Victoria Nahum, co-founder of the Safe Care Campaign.
