Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit Inspires Healthcare Industry Stakeholders to Action in Pursuit of 0 Preventable Patient Deaths by 2020
Date:2/14/2013

ween the hospital, medtech companies, executives, doctors and engineers. We brought in the voice of the patient with powerful stories from patient advocates. We identified challenges that are causing preventable deaths and provided recipes to address the challenges. The recipes were clear, concise and left nothing out, for the sake of patient safety. We asked medtech companies to sign a pledge to make the data their products are purchased for, the patient's data. We also announced that to return to the next Summit, each attendee had to make a commitment toward achieving the goal of zero preventable deaths. Former President Clinton also joined the challenge and from the reaction of the participants, the formula worked. We got nine medtech companies to make the pledge. We got more than 20 hospitals and hospital groups to make commitments to implement one to all of the recipes to get to zero preventable deaths," Kiani continued.

"But, to realize the dream of zero preventable deaths by 2020, we all have to get involved and we all have to commit. I urge all of my colleagues in our healthcare industry, from medtech companies to hospitals, from doctors and nurses to engineers and technicians, to join us today and make a commitment to zero preventable patient deaths by 2020, one hospital department at a time, one medical product at a time, one act of kindness and love at a time, especially on Valentine's Day," Kiani concluded. "To join us, please visit ThePatientSafetyMovement.org and make your commitment to Zero!"
