An INQRI Blogging Event: Reflections on the 10th Anniversary of "To Err is Human"

In 1999, the Institute of Medicine released a report that revolutionized healthcare in the United States. Finding that as many as 98,000 people die each year from medical errors in hospitals, "To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System" sparked a nationwide conversation about how safe patients are in America and advanced an ambitious agenda for promoting patient safety and quality improvement.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of this influential report, the INQRI blog hosted a series of posts from national health care leaders, researchers and advocates who offered their perspectives on how the report changed the practice of health care in the United States and what challenges lie ahead.
