Vice President Joe Biden to Deliver Keynote Remarks at 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit


The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announced today that former Vice President Joe Biden will deliver the keynote address on the first day of the 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit to be held February 3rd & 4th 2017.

“We are honored to have Vice President Biden join us again and provide the keynote on the first day of our Summit,” stated Joe Kiani, Founder and Chairman of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. “Vice President Biden has been a longtime supporter of the Patient Safety Movement and has transformed cancer research and collaboration. We hope one day due to his work, deaths due to cancer will be as preventable as deaths due to medical errors in hospitals.”

Last year, Patient Safety Movement awarded President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden the Humanitarian Award for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Acts (ACA). Not only has their work allowed more people to have access to healthcare, but through the new payment incentives, over 125,000 lives have been saved from preventable deaths.

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 and solutions of patient safety. The Foundation also convenes Patient Safety, Science and Technology summits. The Summits bring 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 recipes to meet patient safety challenges, called Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data for whom their products are purchased, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, Patient Safety Movement is working toward zero preventable deaths by 2020.
