The PSNet Innovations page highlights pioneering advances that can improve patient safety. PSNet innovations are defined as “new or updated interventions, approaches, systems, tools, policies, organizational structures or business models implemented to improve or enhance quality of care and reduce harm.” The PSNet Innovations page includes innovations developed, tested, and sustained within the past five years, updates to existing innovations that were featured in AHRQ’s Health Care Innovations Exchange, as well as “emerging innovations,” which are new, novel approaches to patient safety improvement recently published in the peer-reviewed literature.

Read more about how PSNet Innovations can be used.

PSNet innovations can be used to:

  • Identify new tactics, strategies, tools, or approaches that could be implemented by a broader audience
  • Learn about recent innovations with promising early results
  • Consider conditions that support the successful implementation or sustainment of an innovation or an emerging innovation

Future posted innovations will be curated by the PSNet team based on their impact on the provision of health care.
