Fresenius Helios develops system to measure patient safety

Fresenius Helios has developed a new system for measuring patient safety, and is introducing it in all 86 Helios hospitals across Germany. The new system will complement the company’s existing quality management system and combine internationally established patient safety indicators with various indicators that Helios has developed through clinical practice. These include measurements on such indicators as false diagnoses, medication errors and patient falls. When Helios begins reporting the results next year, it will be the first German hospital operator to provide patient safety data that can be compared internationally.
