Measuring Patient Harm in Canadian Hospitals Virtual Announcement

CPSI is making a major announcement on Wednesday, and you’re invited to join us virtually as they launch a report and an Improvement Resource on Hospital Harm.

Developed in partnership with the Canadian Institute for Health Information, this initiative uses administrative data to develop a new patient safety measure for inpatient care and includes unintended occurrences of harm that can be potentially prevented by implementing evidence-informed practices.

The launch features a 40-minute expert panel discussion led by CPSI CEO Chris Power.
