19 Healthcare Organizations in Taiwan Make Commitments Toward Zero Preventable Patient Deaths

Jaa

The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announced today that 19 hospitals and healthcare organizations in Taiwan have signed a commitment to implement processes to eliminate preventable patient deaths. The commitments were announced in Taichung City, Taiwan in June 2017. The Respiratory Therapists Society of the Republic of China also joined the PSMF as a committed partner. These commitments mark a major milestone in the PSMF’s continuing efforts to expand awareness and commitments to action toward protecting patient safety internationally.

The 19 Taiwanese healthcare providers, including some of the country’s top hospitals, have so far made over 20 separate commitments to implement processes such as the PSMF’s Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). In March 2017, Dr. Chan-Liao became one of the PSMF’s Regional Network Chairs, heading patient safety efforts in Taiwan. He is Chairman of Jen Ai Foundation, Vice President of Jen Ai Hospital and founder of Taiwan Patient Safety Culture Club (TPSCC). He has devoted the past decade to improving patient safety across Taiwan and beyond.

“We are excited to see these commitments from Taiwan. Their commitment to zero preventable deaths is expected to save more than 1,600 lives each year,” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. “The movement to protect patients from fatal, unintended harm is an international concern that demands a global effort. Patient Safety is a human right.”

“I am proud of how many of my fellow colleagues across the Taiwanese medical community have stepped up to join me in this effort to reach zero preventable deaths,” said Dr. Chan-Liao Mingi, PSMF’s Regional Network Chair, Chairmen of Jen Ai Foundation, VP of Jen Ai Hospital and founder of TPSCC. “My work with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation has enabled me to expedite our patient safety efforts in Taiwan. I am confident that more and more hospitals will come forward to commit to zero in the coming months. Together, we will save thousands of lives.”

To date, the following 19 hospitals and organizations in Taiwan have committed to one or more APSS. To view each commitment, please visit http://patientsafetymovement.org/challenges-solutions/commitments-pledges/.

About The Patient Safety Movement Foundation

More than 200,000 people die every year in U.S. hospitals and 3 million worldwide in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare to reduce that number of preventable deaths to 0 by 2020 (0X2020). Improving patient safety will require a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems with actionable solutions for patient safety. The Foundation also convenes the World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. The Summit brings together some of the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new ideas to challenge the status quo. By presenting specific, high-impact solutions to meet patient safety challenges, called Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data their products are purchased for, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is working toward zero preventable deaths by 2020.
