MEDI+SIGN has pledged to share their data to promote patient safety and reduce preventable deaths by signing the Patient Safety Movement’s Open Data Pledge.
May 23, 2017 – Smithsburg, Maryland — MEDI+SIGN announced today that they signed the Patient Safety Movement’s Open Data Pledge, a public pledge to share their data to promote patient safety.
The Open Data Pledge is designed to foster a marketplace of data analytics to encourage entrepreneurs to develop novel uses of health data that will improve patient safety and reduce preventable deaths. If enough medical technology companies share the data their products are purchased for, it allows engineers and researchers to develop predictive algorithms that notify clinicians and patients of dangerous trends. The pledge does not ask any company to share protected or proprietary data or not follow all the privacy laws. To date, 78 companies have made the pledge.
More than 3,000,000 people worldwide, and 200,000+ people in the United States die every year in hospitals in ways that could have been prevented. It is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US and the cost is close to $1.44 Trillion.
“At MEDI+SIGN, we understand the power of data to save lives,” said Andrew Hoffman, President of MEDI+SIGN. “We look forward to working closely with the Patient Safety Movement Foundation in eliminating preventable patient deaths.”
