Mission

Zero Tolerance for Medical Errors

In May 2016, a study from John Hopkins revealed that about 250,000 deaths in the United States were due to medical errors – this makes Medical Errors the 3rd leading cause of death in the US, after heart disease and cancer.

On the other hand; our per capita healthcare cost is approximately $8,713. At a total spend of $3 trillion, or 18 percent of the national economy; the US healthcare is the most expensive system in the world, yet failing us when it comes to the best quality outcomes.

Where is the disconnect? We do not lack resources, we have the best surgical procedures in the world, the best medications money can buy, world’s best imaging techniques, etc. yet why do we fail our citizens in providing the best quality of care?
