ECRI Institute Patient Safety Assurance
Our patient safety team drives improvements in safety working with healthcare delivery organizations and stakeholders across all settings of care. Named a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, ECRI Institute has collected more than 2.6 million serious patient safety events and near-miss reports from over 1,800 healthcare providers around the country.
We study the events, determine causes, and research best practices. This information provides a rich evidence base that generates real-world solutions to complex safety problems. We disseminate lessons, guidance, and recommendations through alerts, in-person meetings, webinars, and newsletters.
