Remaking American Medicine miniseries to air

  1. Don’t Miss “Remaking American Medicine”
    Premiering This Week on PBS Stations Across the Country:
    IHI would like to alert you to a four-part series called “Remaking American Medicine” that will be airing on public television stations across the country starting this week. This is a ground breaking look at where and how health care is being redesigned in the United States. The series focuses on critical issues in health care improvement, such as building systems to fight deadly infections, partnering with patients to manage chronic care, and creating reliable communication processes to taking responsibility for serious and tragic medical errors. The 100,000 Lives Campaign is featured as one of the catalysts enabling hospitals and front line staff to accelerate and spread improvement efforts.

    Complete details about the series and local broadcast times are available at:

    Sorry about that. I work for the same university at which KPBS is based, so maybe that is why I was I was able to link right into it... I didn't realize there'd be a problem!

    Some filming was going on at a facility that I have worked for and may be on it, so I will be interested in seeing it.
