New Patient Safety Government App Challenge

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology recently opened a new app challenge focused on patients safety appropriately called the Reporting Patient Safety Events Challenge. The challenge stems from a 2011 Institute of Medicine Report, The Health IT and Patient Safety: Building Safer Systems for Better Care, which among other things, recommended voluntary adverse event reporting using a format developed by the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
