The Utah Department of Health is committed to the goal of increasing patient safety in health care facilities. Studies cited in the Institute of Medicine report, To Err Is Human, estimate that between 44,000 and 98,000 Americans die each year as the result of medical errors, with national health care costs from preventable adverse events totaling between nine and fifteen billion dollars. Through a number of collaborative initiatives, UDOH is striving to better understand the nature and occurrence of adverse events in Utah and to implement interventions aimed at reducing the incidence of adverse events.
