Many health outcomes continue to advance swiftly through new and more effective treatments. At the same time, medical errors and harm to patients remains an issue in all healthcare systems. The rising number of medical errors and the need to ensure patient safety and high quality of care have become key priorities for healthcare organizations across the globe. According to the journal of patient safety, around 210,000 to 440,000 fatalities occur each year in the U.S. due to preventable medical errors. They accounted for one-sixth of the annual deaths in the U.S. in 2014. The cost of these errors is around USD 1 trillion annually. Owing to the growing concern of these errors, hospitals and other healthcare settings are increasingly focusing on patient safety by reducing the number of errors and subsequently the number of deaths caused by them.
Patient safety has become a priority for almost all major healthcare systems across the globe. The field has developed significantly in the last decade and is currently on the verge of dramatic change. There is a considerable adoption of these solutions across the globe with developed regions such as North America and Europe continuously focusing on improving the health outcomes by adopting advanced health IT solutions such as patient safety and risk management software. However, the implementation of these solutions has been variable across different countries with developing nations awakening to this concept as one of the major focus areas. With the increasing need to curtail growing healthcare costs, rising incidence of medical errors, and growing need to adhere to regulatory guidelines; the adoption of systems for overseeing the reporting of adverse events, near misses, and potentially unsafe conditions is expected to increase significantly in the next five years.
