“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.

Third-Party Study Validates STATS K50 GPS’ Superior Accuracy in Measuring High-Intensity Performance18.2.2019 07:00:00Pressemelding

In a recent independent study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), STATS, the worldwide leader in sports data and intelligence, had its novel 50 Hz GPS system (STATS K50) tested against a traditional 15 Hz GPS system (GPSports SpiProX) to measure covered distance and instantaneous velocity. Both systems were simultaneously recorded and measured against a criterion reference (Laveg radar gun) during 30-metre linear sprint trials. The study, commissioned by STATS and conducted by TUM, found that STATS K-50 has a smaller bias than a traditional technology and that it is capable of quantifying high intensity activities 30% more accurately. High-intensity movements and accelerated runs over short distances are believed to be the most important variables to be tracked in sports science. STATS K50’s new approach to wearable tracking is an integrated inertial navigation system (INS)/GPS technology that combines 50 Hz GPS position and Doppler velocity measurements with inertial measurem

Spearheaded by the dynamic entrepreneur Adrian Cheng of K11 and New World Development, the rejuvenation of Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront is just the starting point. The city’s iconic harbourside walkway, Avenue of Stars, has just received a much-awaited makeover that’s the brainchild of Cheng and visually conceived by James Corner, the landscape architect responsible for the High Line in New York. It sees the addition of design-driven rest areas, kiosks featuring homegrown brands, hand prints from Asian film stars and interactive digital elements.
