Pursuing patient safety at the intersection of design, systems engineering, and health care delivery research: an ongoing assessment.

Henriksen K, Rodrick D, Grace EN, et al. Journal of patient safety. 2019.

Applying systems engineering strategies from problem analysis through postimplementation evaluation can lead to solutions grounded in actual practice and learning for individuals, teams, and organizations. This commentary discusses the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality patient safety learning laboratories initiative. The authors, who serve as program officers and oversee the grants, review lessons learned through experiences of grantees.
