PSNet: Patient Safety Network

Patient Safety Innovations Exchange

The Patient Safety Innovations Exchange highlights important innovations that can lead to improvements in patient safety. It is based on AHRQ’s Health Care Innovations Exchange, which shares many health care innovations, including those that improve patient safety. While available for anyone to search, the Health Care Innovations Exchange has not had new content added since 2016. In order to preserve and update some of the patient safety content on the Health Care Innovations Exchange, select innovations are now being integrated with PSNet. Patient safety innovations are defined as “implementation of new or altered products, tools, services, processes, systems, policies, organizational structures, or business models implemented to improve or enhance quality of care and reduce harm. Patient safety Innovations may be local, regional, national, or international in scope and those included on the AHRQ PSNet Innovation Exchange have implementation data available demonstrating impact.”
PSNet innovations can be used to: Read more
  • Uncover innovations that could be implemented by a broader audience,
  • Learn about recent innovations with promising early results, and
  • Consider conditions that support the successful implementation or sustainment of a new innovation.

Future innovations will be carefully curated by subject matter experts based on their impact on the provision of health care.
