JHU to link ICU machines in safety effort
The Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, based at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, was awarded the grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The foundation plans to award $500 million over the next 10 years for research on eliminating preventable harm in hospitals. Hopkins will put the grant toward a project aimed at reducing preventable patient harm during their hospital stay by working with engineers to create a system which can share information between the various medical devices used to treat patients in intensive care units.
