2020 Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit

2020 Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit


Find the Patient Safety Movement on Social Media 







The 8th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit is co-convened with the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) and will bring together all stakeholder groups to discuss novel solutions to the leading challenges facing hospitals today. We invite international hospital leaders, medical and information technology companies, the patient advocacy community, public policy makers and government officials to join us for our 8th Annual event in 2020 and be part of this momentous event as we share our plans post-2020.

The Summit featured keynote addresses from public figures, patient safety experts and plenary sessions with healthcare luminaries, and patient advocates, as well as announcements from organizations who have made their own commitments to reach the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s goal of ZERO preventable deaths by 2020.

The 2019 Summit brought in the greatest percentage of C-Level and Executives to date at 44% of all attendees. We aim for a similar breakdown in 2020.
