Region's Hospitals Engage in New Patient-Safety Efforts to Further Reduce Infections, Errors, and Improve Quality of Care

Partnership for Patient Care launches fourth-year program that focuses on similar practices used by nation's most safety-conscious industries

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Partnership for Patient Care, a quality and patient safety effort led by southeastern Pennsylvania hospitals and one of the region's largest health care insurers, Independence Blue Cross, announces its new initiatives for 2009-2011 today at a conference at the College of Physicians here.

Similar techniques have been successfully used by the nuclear power and aviation industries to ensure the highest possible safety conditions.

Featured speakers at today's conference will include "high reliability" health care experts Craig Clapper and Carole Stockmeier, partners at Healthcare Performance Improvement, a nationally prominent consulting firm, which will lead area hospitals in their diagnostic assessments.
