“I’ve said before that we must not hope for zero preventable patient deaths, we must plan for zero. We are thrilled by the leadership of Dr. Mingi Chan Liao M.D., Ph.D. and the Taiwan Patient Safety Culture Club who have rallied Taiwan’s hospitals to act on behalf of patients everywhere. Only through action will we be able to eliminate preventable harm from hospitals,” explained Joe Kiani, Founder, and Chairman of the Patient Safety Movement.

At the rally, Joe Kiani welcomed attendees with a short video. Each hospital’s leadership and executive staff took the stage to publicly announce their commitments to implement the APSS that, when implemented, will positively improve the care provided in their facilities. The list of committed hospitals and partners include:

More than 120 supporters attended the rally as the Taiwan Patient Safety Culture Club works to join the PSMF in unifying the healthcare ecosystem.

“To improve patient safety, we must not only listen but act. I am thrilled by the commitment of all sixteen committed hospitals and partners who have shown great leadership by implementing evidence-based processes proven to improve patient safety. The combined commitments from our two rallies means that 19 out of 22 administrative regions have embraced patient safety with the commitment to ZERO preventable deaths by 2020,” explained Dr. Chan Liao.

Following the rally, Ms. Longley joined the Club’s President, Dr. Chan Liao, for visits to local hospitals. The rally is the second in the last year by Taiwan’s hospitals to raise awareness and take action to improve patient safety in hospitals. Last year, 19 Taiwanese hospitals made commitments to implementing APSS.

About Patient Safety Movement Foundation:

More than 200,000 U.S. patients and three million worldwide die each year from preventable causes. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare to reduce that number of preventable deaths to zero by 2020 (0X2020). Improving patient safety requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The PSMF works with all stakeholders to address problems with actionable solutions. The Foundation also convenes the World Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit bringing together some of the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new ideas that 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.
