IHI rolls out new national action plan for patient safety

With the goal of eliminating preventable medical harm, a new National Action Plan was released in mid-September  by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI) National Steering Committee for Patient Safety (NSC).

The plan is designed to provide health systems with advice and directions stemming from evidence-based practices, case studies, interventions, and new innovations. The report, Safer Together: A National Action Plan to Advance Patient Safety, was put together with the input of 27 federal agencies, safety organizations and experts, and patient and family advocates.

“The plan shows how leaders can move from measurement to action,” said NSC Co-Chair Jeffrey Brady, MD, MPH, who directs the Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety at the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, during an IHI-hosted press call.
