Lower error rates. Lower malpractice premiums. Better patient care. These are results in anesthesia over 30 years of coordinated effort that can be a model for patient safety in all specialties, according to Jeffrey Cooper, PhD, Executive Director of the Center for Medical Simulation in Cambridge. Cooper recently addressed staff at Harvard’s medical malpractice and patient safety company, CRICO. He linked the data, funding, and incentive programs from CRICO to widespread safety improvements through clinical guidelines and the spread of simulation and team training. By working closely with its malpractice organization, Harvard’s medical community has achieved notable improvements in safety. Cooper sees this kind of collaboration gaining throughout the world.
