CAPSAC is a group of more than 60 of the state’s leading public and private health care stakeholders who are dedicated to continuously improving patient safety by fostering the sharing of information.
CAPSAC wants to change the current culture of blame and punishment in medical error reporting to one of trust and accountability. Its purpose is three-fold.
- Provide opportunities for health care organizations to share best practices and learn from each other in order to prevent errors from re-occurring.
- Educate regulatory agencies, legislators, consumers, health care providers, purchasers of health care and the media about research-proven approaches to increasing patient safety.
- Serve as a resource to the Department of Public Health, the Center for Healthcare Quality, patient safety institutions, and professional licensing boards.
