Harrisburg, Pa., June 22, 2017 — The Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority has refreshed its website (patientsafety.pa.gov). The refreshed site features enhanced navigation and search features, a new look and feel, and mobile responsiveness.

The site enhancements allow visitors, such as healthcare providers and patients, to find relevant content quickly, such as the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory, patient safety topics, and safety tips for patients.

“We strategically focused on our end users during this process,” states Regina Hoffman, executive director of the Authority. “In 2016, our website received more than 1.5 million hits, predominantly for our Advisory journal and educational tools, so our refresh process focused on providing even better access to these and other important Authority resources.”

Additional highlights include a training and events section about upcoming education events and conferences, a media resources page, and a request form for Authority speakers associated with a variety of patient safety topics.

“We are excited about the refreshed site. Our goal is to continue to make patient safety information accessible to healthcare providers and patients,” continues Hoffman. “Our hope is that each visitor has a successful and enjoyable user experience.”

For more information about the Authority, please visit its refreshed website at patientsafety.pa.gov.

The Authority’s mission is to improve the quality of healthcare in Pennsylvania by collecting and analyzing patient safety information, developing solutions to patient safety issues, and sharing this information through education and collaboration. Its vision is safe healthcare for all patients.
