National Center for Patient Safety (NCPS).

Department of Veterans Affairs.

The NCPS represents a unified and cohesive patient safety effort. The program, which won the John Eisenberg Award in 2002, is unique in health care. It focuses on prevention rather than punishment by applying human factors analysis and the safety research of high-reliability organizations. This process is targeted at identifying and eliminating system vulnerabilities.
