Improving Patient Safety

While keeping patients safe is the ultimate goal of every healthcare organization, many have their own way of classifying patient safety incidents, making it difficult to share learnings and track collective efforts over time. This work stream will build on an existing patient safety collaborative that, for more than three years, has harnessed the collective QIPS expertise across participating organizations to reduce preventable patient harm.

This work stream’s initial project will align patient safety incident classification using the Press Ganey/ Healthcare Performance Improvement Safety Events Classification system to develop a common taxonomy and approach to identifying preventable harm across TAHSN hospitals.
