ECRI's Top 10 Patient Safety List

July 13, 2017

Summary

Patient safety is a top priority for every healthcare organization. Knowing where to direct patient safety initiatives can be a daunting task with the tighter budget margins most healthcare organizations are experiencing.

To help guide organizations in deciding where to focus their patient safety efforts, ECRI Institute compiles an annual list of the top 10 patient safety concerns confronting healthcare organizations. The fourth annual Top 10 Patient Safety List was released in March 2017. The top 10 list is largely based on recurring trends identified from the data voluntarily submitted to ECRI Institute's Patient Safety Organization for review and analysis.

This webinar will review each of the top 10 patient safety concerns as well as suggested risk mitigation strategies for healthcare organizations to address these concerns.
