Enhancing Patient Safety with Automated Event Detection: A Hospital’s Guide

The landscape of patient safety in the United States is a mix of progress and challenges, with study after study underscoring the persistence of adverse events and medical errors in hospitals. Prioritizing patient safety is increasingly vital for health system leaders, and effective reporting systems play a crucial role in managing safety events as well as in understanding the root causes of harm.
