Using Software to Save Lives

Founded by a Mayo Clinic doctor regarded as one of the top patient safety experts in the nation, HB Healthcare Safety (HBHS) believes that “no one should ever suffer or die as a result of process or system failures.”

After spending years collecting and reviewing data on patient mortality at Mayo, HBHS wanted to create a system that would allow hospitals across the country to input, aggregate and analyze information on mortality, failures of healthcare delivery, adverse events and diagnostic errors.

The goal? “Help healthcare systems pinpoint the common causes of patient harm in their systems and processes, provide technology that monitors the action and inactions that lead to harm and develop processes addressing failures of care delivery.”

In other words: use software to help improve patient care and save people’s lives.
