Checklist on Medicine – Patient Safety Study


Increasing health care costs, serious and recurring medical errors, along with rising incidence and prevalence of chronic diseases in our rapidly aging population have placed enormous and unprecedented pressures on our already overloaded health care systems. Our Checklist On Medicine-PAtient Safety Study (COMPASS) project uses an efficient checklist to allow clinicians to follow a systematic and comprehensive approach to ensure a consistent standard of care to patients on the General Internal Medicine wards. We believe our innovative intervention will reduce complications and errors, promote seamless transfer of care from the inpatient to ambulatory settings, reduce readmissions and re-hospitalizations, strengthen clinical safety practices, and enhance the overall experience and quality of care for our complex patients.
