Preventable medical errors kill more than 250,000 Americans each year. While the number is staggering, the solutions to preventing errors are known and need to be prioritized.
In this 60-minute fireside chat, Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group, will discuss the strategies that need to be implemented to help improve patient safety and reduce errors such as “never events.” This includes the recommendations made by The Working Group on Patient Safety, which was established by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, and Leapfrog’s recommendations on how to reduce diagnostic errors.
