Coming Clean: How Hospital Transparency Will Transform Patient Safety
The 2012 Annual Meeting was the first meeting since the launch of the Hospital Safety Score, and the meeting held a strong focus on issues of patient safety. Dr. Peter Pronovost, Director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety at Johns Hopkins University and Hospital Safety Score Expert Panelist, gave a keynote speech on how every hospital can achieve excellence in patient safety. Regina Holliday, patient safety advocate, gave a moving presentation on her husband's battle with cancer and the resulting steps she's taken to improve the health care system. A record number of hospitals - 93 - received a Top Hospital Award that evening.
