ISQua supports patient safety

 

The International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) is supporting the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) and their mission to eliminate preventable deaths in hospitals, with a signed cooperation agreement.

ISQua and PSMF will work together to further their aims to improve quality and safety in healthcare and eliminate preventable patient deaths. They will identify common projects in patient safety.

Medical travel is in the spotlight globally for unnecessary patient deaths where inaction by countries and the medical travel business reduces global potential and harms customers, often with no comeback on perpetrators who place making money over patient safety.

For over 30 years, ISQua has worked to improve the quality and safety of health care worldwide. ISQua’s networks connect health professionals across all six continents.

More than 200,000 people die every year in US hospitals and 4.8 million worldwide in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation is a global non-profit which creates free tools for patients and hospitals with the goal to reduce that number of preventable deaths to zero.

Improving patient safety will require a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems with actionable solutions for patient safety.

By presenting specific, high-impact solutions to meet patient safety challenges, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data their products are purchased for, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is working toward zero preventable deaths.
