We help hospitals improve patient safety & clinical reliability
Hospitals are dangerous places. Each patient who walks into a hospital has a one-in-three chance of being injured during his or her stay. While hospitals have made tremendous strides in improving patient care, these improvements have impacted only a small fraction of these avoidable injuries--about 90% of them still go unreported and unnoticed. This results in additional and unnecessary procedures, longer hospital stays, increased mortality, and other factors that add at least $30 billion in cost to acute care each year in the United States alone, and likely much more.
There's a path forward. Leading hospitals are improving patient safety and the quality of care by developing an understanding of what causes harm and by monitoring a broad range of harm on an ongoing basis. That's where Pascal Metrics comes in. Our approach brings together a clinically-validated methodology and technology to help hospitals improve the safety and reliability of patient care, ultimately saving lives.
