- About I-Pass
In 2010 we created the first I-PASS Intervention Bundle for resident physicians and completed a multisite study at 9 Children's Hospitals. Following that, I-PASS Study wins honorable mention at the AAMC Readiness for Reform Health Care Innovation Challenge.
We begin 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 we have our I-PASS Bundle implemented in hundreds of hospitals as their go-to method for reducing patient harm. A 2021 Lancet Study showed that when hospitals implement all aspects of the I-PASS Bundle they can reduce patient harm by up to 70%. We look forward to helping you reduce patient harm in your institution.
