ECRI partners with MAPS


Patient safety organizations (PSO) ECRI Institute and The Midwest Alliance for Patient Safety (MAPS) have combined synergies to help guide the transformation of patient care in Illinois and beyond.

As part of its expanding PSO program, MAPS has teamed up with ECRI Institute to deliver PSO adverse event data collection solutions, robust educational opportunities and privilege protections provided by law. In addition, the enhanced program delivers nationally recognized PSO training, in-depth data analysis, and extensive educational tools for improving the quality of patient care.

“Our collective resources will support patient safety initiatives while providing all the benefits and protections of belonging to a PSO,” said Maryjane Wurth, chief executive officer, MAPS. “By collaborating with ECRI Institute, MAPS is one step closer to our goal of providing the most comprehensive and dynamic PSO program in the Midwest.”

Ronni Solomon, JD, general counsel and executive vice president, ECRI Institute, added: “MAPS and ECRI Institute share similar values focused on supporting our members’ quality, safety, and performance improvement needs. Our collective programs will offer a wealth of research and educational opportunities for the MAPS PSO membership. We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship.”
