Safer Healthcare Now! Is a campaign supported by and patterned after the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) 100K Lives campaign and designed to enlist Canadian healthcare organizations in implementing six targeted interventions in patient care.
Safer Healthcare Now! is sponsored and supported by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and numerous other national and provincial healthcare organizations. Each of the six interventions has an evidence base indicating that appropriate implementation and practice can lead to reduced mortality and morbidity. Evidence clearly indicates there is significant opportunity for improvement in implementing these strategies.
Safer Healthcare Now! is a highly collaborative effort among healthcare organizations across Canada. The campaign is open to all healthcare organizations across Canada. To date, over 140 healthcare organizations and over 350 clinical teams from across Canada have enrolled in the campaign. The campaign mission is to improve the health services delivered to Canadians and is guided by the philosophy of minimizing cost to those who enroll with no provincial, territorial or jurisdictional barriers.
