FACTS AND STATS

Hospital executives are spending more time than ever addressing patient safety. According to an online survey of 140 members of the Health Management Academy representing 79 of the U.S. largest health systems:

  • Sixty-four per cent of all executive groups (CEOs, CFOs, CMOs, and CNOs) rated patient safety as the top priority (also for CEOs at 46 %) over financial health, patient satisfaction, information technology, and physician loyalty.
  • Forty-six per cent spend more than 25% of their time on patient safety.
  • Establishing a patient-safety culture was the top priority - at 47% ("nothing else was even close").
  • According to 90% of the surveyed executives, their organizations increased spending on patient safety from 2004 to 2005.
