Ohio Children's Hospital's Solutions for Patient Safety

Launched in 2009, Solutions for Patient Safety is a partnership between the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association (OCHA) and the business community to improve quality and reduce costs. Initial efforts have focused on the elimination of serious safety events (SSEs) and the creation of a statewide patient harm index for children. OCHA was founded by Akron Children’s and five other Ohio children’s hospitals.
