Shining a light: Safer health care through transparency (National Patient Safety Foundation, U.S)


posted by WM Admin on 23 January 2015

This report makes "... recommendations to bring greater transparency in four domains: between clinicians and patients; among clinicians within an organization; between organizations; and between organizations and the public. It makes the case that true transparency will result in improved outcomes, fewer medical errors, more satisfied patients, and lowered costs of care".

The report includes case studies to show how transparency is practiced in each of the domains.
