Johns Hopkins' Armstrong Institute receives $8.9 million patient safety grant
Date:8/28/2012

Johns Hopkins' Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality has received an $8.9 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the first award given as part of an ambitious new $500 million, 10-year program designed to eliminate all preventable harms that patients experience in the hospital.

The Johns Hopkins grant will focus on hospital intensive care units, with the goal of preventing harms by better engaging patients and their families in their own care, making them an integral part of the health care team. The Hopkins group's aim is also to improve outcomes by using a systems engineering approach to health care, leveraging technologies and creating better processes to ensure patients always receive the therapies and treatments they need and that clinicians work as effectively and efficiently as possible. The grant will provide further impetus to earlier groundbreaking patient safety work by the institute's director, Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., the senior vice president for patient safety and quality at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

"Despite heroic efforts by clinicians, patients continue to suffer preventable harm, in large part because health care is grossly under-engineered: Devices don't talk to each other, treatments are not specified and ensured, and outcomes are largely assumed rather than measured," Pronovost says. "This project will seek to change that by enlisting systems engineers to ensure patients always get the treatments they should, by engaging patients in every aspect of their care and creating a health care system that continuously improves."

The grant is the first in the Foundation's newly created Patient Care Program, which will fund many investigative grants and research projects in support of its bold efforts toward developing a fundamentally better approach to health care in the United States. The program seeks to improve quality and safety, reduce costs, and ensure dignity and respect are
