What Should You Do To Improve Patient Safety & Healthcare Quality?

My Mom suffered a sentinel event at a hospital in Illinois. Many of the readers here may have had loved ones who died or were significantly injured by mistakes at a hospital. But what can we do to improve patient safety and healthcare quality? Attend the Improving Healthcare Quality & Patient Safety Best Practice Track at the 2014 Global TapRooT® Summit.

When your mom is injured in a hospital sentinel event, you take performance improvement even more seriously. But I started the Improving Healthcare Quality & Patient Safety Best Practice Track back in 1995 – long before sentinel events and patient safety became front page news (and before my mom was injured). But why am I explaining my personal link to this track at the Summit? Because I want you to know how important this session is and how hard we work to bring valuable information to healthcare professional who attend the Summit.
