Patient Safety Movement Announces the 3rd Fishing Trip with President Jimmy Carter & First Lady Rosalynn
The Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) announces its third annual contest to win a fishing trip with former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter. The top two healthcare institutions that commit to save the highest number of lives through commitments to implementing processes, such as the Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS), by August 1, 2017 will be selected to go on this exclusive fishing trip with President Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter.
For the third year in a row, President and Mrs. Carter are helping the Patient Safety Movement to achieve its goal of ZERO preventable patient deaths by encouraging healthcare institutions to make commitments to saving the greatest number of lives with this annual contest and prize.
“The word has gotten out on this amazing trip and each year we see a considerable increase on the number of healthcare organizations that participate…2017 will be no exception. The biggest winners of course are the patients and staff of those hospitals that commit to zero. We are very excited to once again partner with the Carters for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Over the years, we have learned so much from President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn. Their willingness to continue providing this opportunity to healthcare organizations around the world year after year speaks volumes of their commitment to help humanity,” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation.
To be considered for the 2017 contest, healthcare institutions should make their commitments by August 1, 2017. Winners will be announced in by August 31, 2017, and the trip will take place October 13-15, 2017. The two winners will have committed and saved the greatest number of lives during the contest period (January 2–August 1, 2017).

About The Patient Safety Movement Foundation
More than 200,000 people die every year in U.S. hospitals in ways that could have been prevented. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation was established through the support of the Masimo Foundation for Ethics, Innovation, and Competition in Healthcare, to reduce that number of preventable deaths to 0 by 2020 (0x2020). Improving patient safety requires a collaborative effort from all stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, medical technology companies, government, employers, and private payers. The Patient Safety Movement Foundation works with all stakeholders to address the problems and solutions of patient safety. The Foundation also convenes Patient Safety, Science and Technology summits. The fifth annual Summit will be held in February 3rd and 4th 2017 and will once again bring together some of the world’s best minds for thought-provoking discussions and new ideas to challenge the status quo. By presenting specific, high-impact recipes to meet patient safety challenges, encouraging medical technology companies to share the data for whom their products are purchased, and asking hospitals to make commitments to implement Actionable Patient Safety Solutions, Patient Safety Movement is working toward zero preventable deaths by 2020.
