From the Wall Street Journal: "Pitching Patient Safety and Hospital Transparency on YouTube"

In this blog post, Laura Landro discusses TransparentHealth, a for-profit patient safety education company founded by Timothy McDonald, chief safety officer at the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago, and his colleague Dave Mayer, a cardiac anesthesiologist. McDonald and Mayer are producing a series of videos focused on patient safety which will outline improvements made after the disclosure of harmful patient events. The videos are being targeted as tools for hospital staff members to watch during patient safety education programs.

This YouTube video is the trailer for the first video, “The Faces of Medical Error: From Tears to Transparency,” which will debut September 24th at the University of Illinois.
