IOM to Launch HIT Study

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, October 4, 2010

Donald Berwick, MD, CMS administrator said improving patient safety in healthcare depends on thoroughness in planning and execution, to find problems systematically and correct them decisively. "We have high expectations for patient safety improvement through HIT, but achieving those goals will require the same careful and vigorous approach that is needed to improve safety in any enterprise. The IOM can help us identify a productive path to better patient safety with the help of HIT," Berwick said.
