Bates, internationally renowned for his work advancing safety and quality in healthcare, who discusses the new technologies advancing healthcare safety. Karen Feinstein, CEO of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation and a leading voice in patient safety, argues for the creation of a National Patient Safety Authority (NPSA), which would standardize medical error protocols to minimize preventable mistakes nationwide.
