Medical Errors and Patient Safety

Rationale

At the time of the passage of the Patient Health Information and Quality Improvement Act in 2000 that created the Patient Safety Center, medical error reporting had existed in New York State for over 15 years. The currently implemented programs best represent the rationale for New York's Patient Safety and Medical Error Reporting efforts, and these goals, as stated in the New York statute that created the Patient Safety Center [NY PBH §2998-2], include:

  • ◊  maximize patient safety
  • ◊  reduce medical errors
  • ◊  improve the quality of health care by improving systems of data reporting, collection, analysis and dissemination
  • ◊  improve public access to health care information
