ECRI and ISMP – Stronger Together

February 11, 2020

In this episode, we’re talking about the new affiliation between ECRI and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, or ISMP. We first announced this affiliation in November 2019 and made it official in January 2020—and now we're excited to look ahead with the two organizations' leaders at the impact we can have together to improve healthcare quality and safety.

ECRI President and CEO, Marcus Schabacker, MD, PhD, and ISMP President, Mike Cohen, RPh, MS, FASHP, discuss the urgent need by the healthcare industry for independent, fact-based, transparent evaluations of new technologies and treatments. As we work on integration planning, we are focused on bringing our Patient Safety Organizations together, expanding our membership offerings, as well as enhancing our educational programs in order to provide resources that make people’s jobs easier and make patients safer.
