I-PASS® Patient Safety Program To Be Implemented At The NIH Clinical Center

I-PASS PROGRAM IS SHOWN TO REDUCE MEDICAL ERRORS

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- I-PASS® Patient Safety Institute, Inc., a provider of a comprehensive set of cloud-based implementation tools supporting the I-PASS package of interventions, today announced that the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center has awarded the company a contract to help implement and sustain the use of the I-PASS standardized handoff method, including training clinical staff on its use.

An estimated 80 percent of the most serious medical errors can be linked to communication failures, particularly during patient handoffs. Handoffs occur at all changes of shift and whenever a patient changes location in a hospital. In a large, multi-center study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, implementation of I-PASS was associated with a 30 percent reduction in medical errors that harm patients. The I-PASS Patient Safety Institute makes it easier to implement the validated I-PASS handoff program to reduce communication failures and ensure safer care for patients. The I-PASS Patient Safety Institute provides hospitals with customized training, expert consultation and cloud-based, technology-enabled tools to facilitate adoption of I-PASS and ensure long-term sustainment.

The I-PASS Patient Safety Institute will help the NIH Clinical Center train their medical professionals with this standardized process as well as initiate metrics and benchmarking to enhance sustainment. I-PASS Patient Safety Institute was created to help hospitals adopt safer handoff practices across disciplines and units as efficiently and effectively as possible.

"The NIH Clinical Center is focused on patient safety," said William Floyd, president and CEO of the I-PASS Patient Safety Institute. "They've recognized the value of the I-PASS program in helping to reduce medical errors, and we look forward to partnering with the research hospital to further standardize and sustain their program through training and education for the benefit of their patients."

About the I-PASS Package of Interventions

The I-PASS program is now being successfully used by more than 60 leading hospitals in the US.  Provided by the I-PASS Patient Safety Institute, the I-PASS program was developed with real-world expertise by clinicians, for clinicians and includes:

  • Certified mentors
  • Virtual immersion web-based simulation training tools
  • Observational software for benchmarking performance
  • I-PASS Electronic health record (EHR) written tool customization
  • A cloud-based, customized implementation roadmap for each hospital

About the I-PASS Patient Safety Institute, Inc.

The I-PASS Patient Safety Institute was founded in April 2016, following seven years of research into improving handoffs by a collaborative of researchers, hospitalists, and medical education specialists. The I-PASS Patient Safety Institute works with organizations to create a customized program to ensure adoption and long-term sustainment of I-PASS through training, expert consultation and cloud-based tools.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
