Top challenges in improving patient safety in 2017
Several information technology practices are among the top 10 patient safety concerns that provider organizations are dealing with in 2017. The list of the most significant concerns was released this week by ECRI Institute, a patient safety organization.
ECRI annually publishes the list to identify potential safety risks within healthcare delivery systems and improve overall safety in patient care. ECRI, which compiled the report, based its conclusions on event data from its Patient Safety Organization, concerns raised by healthcare providers and on expert judgment.
