I'm happy to have hosted and moderated a panel discussion format webinar that was sponsored by Value Capture.
Click the link above to register.
The panelists are two people who have been drivers or supporters of this proposed NPSB:
- Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative
- Ken Segel, CEO of Value Capture
This preview video includes discussions with Karen and Ken:
From the webinar description, you can find a few links that provide more information about the NPSB proposal:
Dr. Feinstein is spearheading the creation of a proposed federal independent agency, the National Patient Safety Board (NPSB), modeled in part after the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Commercial Aviation Safety Team, that would identify and anticipate significant harm in healthcare; provide expertise to study the context and causes of harm and solutions; and create solutions to prevent patient safety events from occurring.
This idea is fully supported by Ken Segel, as he has discussed in this blog post. He will join Dr. Feinstein for the discussion.
In December, legislation was introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives: H.R.9377 – the National Patient Safety Board Act.
