Transforming Health Care: A Compendium of Reports from the NPSF Lucian Leape Institute

 

 

A guide for health care leaders in assessing where their organizations stand in the journey to safer care and what steps they can take to make greater progress

This compendium brings together the executive summaries, recommendations, and action checklists from five reports published by the Institute between 2010 and 2015. The series of reports has revealed how much the issues overlap and intersect. What has become particularly clear is the fact that strong leadership and a culture of safety are essential for lasting improvement in patient safety. We urge health care leaders to use the recommendations presented here to inform discussions, set work priorities, and make what may sometimes be difficult decisions that will help them make progress toward safer care.

Shining a Light: Safer Health Care Through Transparency

Defining transparency as “the free flow of information that is open to the scrutiny of others,” this report offers sweeping recommendations to bring greater transparency in four domains: between clinicians and patients; among clinicians within an organization; between organizations; and between organizations and the public. It makes the case that true transparency will result in improved outcomes, fewer medical errors, more satisfied patients, and lowered costs of care.

 Order from Chaos: Accelerating Care Integration

 
 

Report of the Lucian Leape Institute Roundtable on Care Integration

Health care today presents a difficult challenge: as our ability to recognize and treat disease continues to grow, so too does the complexity of delivering those solutions to each patient and to populations. Too often, care integration–the planned, thoughtful design of the care process for the benefit and protection of the patient—is lacking. This report, the result of a Roundtable that brought together the insights of various stakeholder groups, addresses the issue of care integration with the aim of outlining the major barriers to effective integration and providing a framework for further consideration and action among stakeholders.

 Unmet Needs: Teaching Physicians to Provide Safe Patient Care

 
 

Report of the NPSF Lucian Leape Institute Roundtable on Reforming Medical Education

Ten years after the Institute of Medicine’s landmark 1999 report To Err Is Human, the Lucian Leape Institute at the National Patient Safety Foundation released a white paper finding that US medical schools are not doing an adequate job of facilitating student understanding of basic knowledge and the development of skills required for the provision of safe patient care. Unmet Needs is the culmination of three LLI roundtable discussions and makes key recommendations for reforming medical education in order to improve patient safety. The paper was the first in a series of such reports on issues that the Lucian Leape Institute has identified as top priorities in ongoing efforts to improve patient safety.
