Healthcare Delivery Free From Harm
HB Healthcare Safety, SBC (HBHS) believes that no one should ever suffer (emotional or physical or mental) or die as a result of process of care or system failures and by no one, we mean patients & families as well as the care teams.
In July 2014, a US Senate hearing declared that 400,000 American lives were lost every year secondary to failures of health care delivery (adverse events &diagnostic errors). For decades people have been counting adverse events, yet very little action has been taken to resolve the process and system failures that lead to the adverse events.
Our focus is to help healthcare systems pin point the common causes of patient harm in their systems and processes, provide technology solution(s) that will monitor the action and inactions that lead to harm, and develop processes to address failures of care delivery.
