Bridge Medical joins NPSF and 34 organizations in convening historic Congress

With medical errors again making headlines this year, federal plans to address this issue become increasingly critical. Next week in Washington, the Honorable Tommy Thompson will tell attendees of the nation's foremost patient safety conference what the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is planning to do to help the healthcare sector better protect patients.

As President George Bush said, in a speech this week in Washington to the American Medical Association's National Advocacy Conference, "Patient safety is improved when doctors and nurses exchange information about problems and solutions." That's exactly what will happen Mar. 12-15 at the Renaissance Washington D.C. Hotel. Healthcare professionals from a variety of disciplines will "exchange information" on keeping patients safe . . . as Bridge Medical--the nation's leading patient safety software company--joins the National Patient Safety Foundation and 34 organizations in hosting the Fifth Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress.

The Congress is being held in concert with National Patient Safety Awareness Week--a national education and awareness-building campaign for improving patient safety at the local level--celebrated Mar. 9-15. This year's theme: "Communication and Partnership: Safety Starts with All of Us."

"That's what President Bush was talking about," said Carol A. Ley, MD, MPH, who chairs the board of NPSF, an organizational founder of Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW). "It starts with us communicating and exchanging information."

"We are honored to have Secretary Thompson join us on Mar. 13 as our keynote speaker. His 'View from the Top' will be perfect for this year's Congress theme: 'Let's Get Results: Improving the Safety of Patients.'" The HHS secretary is expected to review the federal government's leadership in improving patient safety, and outline federal legislative, regulatory, research and technical assistance initiatives designed to help physicians
