White Paper: A Clinically Integrated Outcomes Strategy for Health Systems Globally

Quality and safety are fundamental goals in all global healthcare systems from both a patient and provider perspective but have remained a challenge for many North American countries. With more than two decades of research and safety initiatives to define and address the problem, patient safety still remains as a top issue for many healthcare organizations. Medical error, a core element of patient safety, has now become the third leading cause of death in North America, behind heart disease and cancer.

The purpose of this paper is to propose a strategy for addressing the seemingly intractable challenge of patient safety and the growing rates of death and injury associated with adverse events in healthcare systems. The paper will examine:

  • The occurrence of adverse events in healthcare across global jurisdictions
  • Lessons from other sectors such as grocery, retail, banking, and automotive to demonstrate the ability to track and trace people, processes and products
  • The challenge of patient safety and reframing the issue from one focused on types and rates of error, to one that examines health system environments that measure the risk of error proactively and enables intervention, ensuring the delivery of safe care
  • The value proposition of restructuring clinical environments for health sector stakeholders
  • Transforming clinical environments to adopt highly transparent supply chain tools and strategies, creating safe and effective environments for patients and practitioners
  • The need for standardization, leadership, and policies to support highly effective healthcare systems
