in his own healthcare. HPTG offers a proven communication and data analysis/measurement application similar to NASA's system called KBCoreSM. Powered by KBCoreSM, HPTG's customized Web-based data collection modules capture, analyze, share, and manage hospital-wide patient safety data from multiple hospitals in a standardized format and with a primary focus on learning, aggregating, and building knowledge.

"I personally lived through a culture change in aviation over the past 35 years and I can tell you first hand that the culture of team building, communicating and knowledge building is desperately needed in the dynamic environment of practicing medicine in hospitals of the future," says Captain Lindsey Donges. "LifeWings and Human Performance Technology Group were both born from the current culture of aviation and utilize 21st century forward thinking in bringing true quality improvements to healthcare and its human element."

Ensuring hospitals get the maximum benefit from this modern, new approach for embedding a proactive, preventive and predictive patient safety knowledge communication and analysis system in hospitals, HPTG is collaborating with LifeWings Partners, the nation's largest provider of aviation-based safety systems for hospitals. LifeWings' Crew Resource Management (CRM) program, built by a former Top Gun instructor and a group of commercial airline pilots, former astronauts, physicians, nurses and risk managers, has been proven to significantly and measurably reduce errors, increase patient and employee satisfaction, reduce turnover, and cut healthcare costs. Taught to more than 13,000 high-performance medical team members each year, the LifeWings system has been a resounding success at scores of institutions. Healthcare facilities using the program have seen error rates reduced ten-fold, observed mortality rates cut by 43%, and surgical count errors decreased by 50%.
