- About I-Pass
In 2010 we created the first I-PASS Intervention Bundle for resident physicians and completed a multisite study at nine Children's Hospitals. Following that study, I-PASS received honorable mention at the AAMC Readiness for Reform Health Care Innovation Challenge.
From there, we began enrolling hospitals in studies to highlight the importance of using a standardized hand-off process to reduce patient harm. This led to a study that highlighted I-PASS as reducing Medical Errors by 23% as well as a 30 reduction in Adverse Events.
Today, our I-PASS Bundle is implemented in hundreds of hospitals as their go-to method for reducing patient harm.
We look forward to helping you reduce patient harm in your institution.
