Pittsburgh Regional Autonomous Patient Safety (RAPS) Initiative
The Pittsburgh RAPS Initiative aims to knit together Pittsburgh’s regional assets to spark collaboration and connection to build a new industry focused on developing autonomous patient safety solutions.
Patient Safety Technology Challenge
Patient safety is a puzzle. You can help solve it. The Patient Safety Technology Challenge is designed to fuel the engagement of students and innovators in creating solutions and envisioning transformational approaches to reduce preventable harm from medical errors and reimagine a vastly safer healthcare system. The initiative will inject patient safety awards into existing local, regional, and national competitions and produce a documentary to help increase awareness of the patient safety crisis.

It is time for the creation of a National Patient Safety Board (NPSB), using well-established and successful models from aviation as a guide, in order to address the persistent problem of medical error. Voice your support and learn more at npsb.org.
