Healthcare is a topic that is becoming increasingly important in each of our lives. Advances in technology and science have enabled the development of new tools to combat disease and improve the lives of people. However, with these advancements have come increasing financial pressures, fewer healthcare providers, and increased patient numbers to our institutions of care. As a result, we are witness to a degradation in the patient experience and an explosion of medical errors and other human mistakes that have increased the morbidity and mortality of patients.
PAMEAS is a patient advocacy organization that supports research and educates providers and patients on issues that will make healthcare delivery safer. We have a dual focus: lower death and mortality from medical errors and improve the patient experience. PAMEAS's strength comes from the depth of our healthcare experience, the breadth of our relationships with clinicians and industry, and our passion and focus on making patients safer.
