AHRQ-Funded Patient Safety Research Featured in Health Affairs
AHRQ-funded research studies focused on critical aspects of patient safety and health information technology were published in a November 2018 patient safety-themed issue of Health Affairs. As part of its commitment to lead patient-safety efforts nationwide, AHRQ has funded studies that aim to reduce medication errors and adverse events, improve communication strategies that support better care coordination, and lower the rate of diagnostic errors through better teamwork and integration of health information technology.
In opening remarks at a Health Affairs briefing, Rear Admiral Jeffrey Brady, M.D., M.P.H., director of AHRQ's Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, highlighted the Agency's work with patient safety research experts in bringing innovative approaches to significantly reduce the risks of patient harm.
