Irvine, CA – Late last March, Rapid Healthcare proudly joined the Patient Safety Movement, pledging commitment to reach zero preventable deaths by 2020. Every year, preventable medical errors lead to more than 200,00 deaths in US hospitals and an excess of 1.26 trillion in excess costs. The Patient Safety Movement, founded by leading medical technology company, Masimo, aims to eliminate these exorbitant emotional and financial costs in 8 effective methods:

  • Unify the healthcare ecosystem
  • Identify the challenges that are killing patients to create actionable solutions
  • Ask hospitals to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solution
  • Promote transparency
  • Ask med tech companies to share rhe data their dvices generate in order to create a Patient Data Super Highway to help identify at risk patients
  • Correct misaligned incentives
  • Promote love and patient dignity
  • Empower providers, patiens and families through education of medical terminology and medical errors so they may better advocate for their loved ones.

To date, the movement consists of 1,713 dedicated hospital organizations and 56 medically oriented companies preventing upwards of 24,000 deaths. Rapid Healthcare anticipates that our positive patient identification technology will only improve the number of preventable deaths moving forward.
