Bainbridge Health, a spin-out company of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia focused on medication safety, is excited to announce its implementation of Bainbridge Health’s medication safety solution across UCSF’s network.
For more than a century, UCSF has delivered high-quality and cutting-edge healthcare to its patients and is recognized throughout the world for innovative patient care, advanced technology and pioneering research. UCSF is one of the most renowned hospital systems in the country, recently ranking #5 in U.S. News & World Report.
“Since founding Bainbridge Health, our mission remains to make the hospital a safer place for patients and to reduce avoidable costs for hospitals by identifying and minimizing events that lead to harm. Eliminating the current requirement of safety leaders to spend hours wading through clinically irrelevant data—and instead providing them with actionable safety recommendations—is central to achieving that mission”, said Joseph Kaupp, CEO of Bainbridge Health. “We are excited to include UCSF in our network of leading hospitals who share our goal of making the hospital a safer place for patients.”
Medication errors are a significant driver of patient harm. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that medication errors lead to at least one death every day and injure more than 1.3 million people annually in the United States alone. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently added medication errors to its “hit list” and estimates the cost of medication errors to be $42 billion globally.
