Health Systems Come Together to Develop a Blueprint for Transforming Patient Safety

On January 24, Ariadne Labs announced the founding members of the JHF-funded Leadership and Innovation Network for the program entitled "Pathway to Accountability, Compassion, and Transparency" (PACT). PACT improves the way healthcare organizations respond to and learn from harm events. Its Leadership and Innovation Network provides a forum for healthcare system leaders to advance, sustain, and scale their patient safety communication and resolution programs.

The founding members of the PACT Leadership and Innovation Network include ChristianaCare, CommonSpirit, Dartmouth Health, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, Hartford, HealthCare, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Washington, Mass General Brigham, MedStar Health, Providence St. Joseph Health, Seattle Children's Hospital, and UMass Memorial Health.

Jewish Healthcare Foundation's grant is supporting the development of the PACT Leadership and Innovation Network to develop a "Blueprint for Transforming Patient Safety."

During the Network's Biannual Meeting on January 24, Dr. Feinstein presented the rationale and vision for the Patient Safety Blueprint. The Blueprint will describe the problem of patient safety, the barriers, the precursors to injury/harm, and the autonomous solutions that could be scaled across healthcare systems to prevent injury/harm. The PACT Leadership and Innovation Network will be developing this Blueprint with input from multi-disciplinary safety experts, human-factors engineers, and innovators from other industries.

The patient safety blueprint will become a foundational framework for the proposed National Patient Safety Board (NPSB) that Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative is advancing with a national advocacy coalition. The NPSB's research and development team would ultimately help to adopt solutions to prevent injury/harm, and the blueprint will be capturing these solutions to scale at the national level.
