    Closing Keynote Session: Safety II. Matthew Scanlon, M.D., Medical College of Wisconsin, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Sponsored by Stratis Health. Traditional patient safety efforts were designed and implemented under the premise that our systems are well understood, well designed and predictable. Therefore, when things go wrong, individuals are often identified as the cause and focus for developing actions to prevent future harm. Today, we realize that most of preventable health care harm events are due to systems issues that are often overlooked. This session will describe the need to offer a new approach to safety that helps understand and address systems issues that contribute to preventable health care harm and provide a practical model for thinking about systems with suggestions for applications by safety teams.
  • Stop by our exhibit and talk with us about improving health, and health care quality and safety.
