Patient and Medication Safety

The leading provider of patient safety and medication safety solutions.

Ever since 2000 when the Institute of Medicine released its watershed report claiming that more than 2 million serious medical errors occur annually, the health care industry has been trying to improve patient safety. McKesson’s comprehensive patient safety framework provides the blueprint to help move the health care quality needle in the right direction.

In addition, by offering solutions that stretch far beyond the general “First, do no harm” notion espoused in the Hippocratic Oath, McKesson is enabling health care organizations to make good on the following patient safety definition:

Patient safety is the sustained, proactive process of identifying, avoiding and rapidly resolving errors, omissions, mishaps and miscommunications that could affect a patient’s healing, health or well-being at any point, at any time, in any care setting.
