The Positive Identification for Patient Safety; Part 1: Medication Delivery Standard was recently approved by Washington-based ANSI (American National Standards Institute).

The standard, which defines the processes and technologies involved with safe medication administration and management, is a joint development of The Health Industry Business Communications Council (HIBCC, Phoenix, Ariz.) and Boston-based Partners HealthCare System.

The new standard was developed from work initiated by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), a hospital within the Partners HealthCare System, to define and develop a safer system for the administration of medication to its patients.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
