Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority Marks Milestone With One Million Reports
Date:8/12/2009

," Doering said. "Facilities are communicating with us to let us know what we can do to help them improve patient safety. Conversely, the PSLs are making their facilities aware of information provided in Patient Safety Advisories that will help them implement process changes that will also improve patient safety."

"The liaisons are also increasing and focusing our educational efforts through the information they receive from facilities and have begun regional collaboratives to address specific patient safety issues," he added.

Doering said that communication is almost always a factor when a medical error occurs. To help open the communication between healthcare providers, the Authority is developing a web based program called the Patient Safety Knowledge Exchange (PassKey).

"The program's success will hinge upon the patient safety officers communicating with one another through this website about what works for them and what doesn't in regard to solutions for reducing serious events and incidents in their facilities," Doering said. "Several facilities in the state are doing great things within their own facilities to improve patient safety. PassKey will give them the forum they need to share the information through conversation and written processes that have been implemented so others can learn from their successes or even sometimes failures."

The PassKey program is expected to be in place by the end of 2009.
