The Challenge We Face with Patient Harm
Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind heart attack and cancer.
Every year, more than 400,000 patients suffer preventable harm that contributes to their death.
Confidently Held Misinformation is implicated in half the cases of preventable harm.
Healthcare is Complex
“You take massive amounts of information stored in the heads of expert health professionals and expect them to somehow correctly deliver it to patients. I personally believe that this combination of smart, confident professionals, tightly trained around specific issues, in conjunction with effective systems, has the potential to carry health systems far beyond what any of us would believe possible.”
