An employer's perspective on medical errors: ambitious and clear.


Health care is far behind in addressing safety when compared to other high risk industries. In recognition of this problem, Leapfrog was created to serve as an informal action group that will leverage buying power to target patient safety issues raised by the threat of medical errors. The author describes Leapfrog's activities and goals, showing how employers are in the position to create contractual requirements, incentives and consumer expectations that can rally the medical field around a new culture that embraces patient safety.
