Activity Description

Through the generosity of the Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Foundation, a discussion series was established in 1988 to bring to greater attention some of the critical health policy issues facing our country today. Each year a topic of special policy relevance is selected and addressed.

The Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Symposium is now a program of the National Academy of Medicine.

The National Academy of Medicine’s 2015 Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Symposium was held on Thursday, December 10, and observed the 15th anniversaries of the landmark Institute of Medicine reports To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System and Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century. The full-day event examined recent gains and remaining challenges in patient safety and care quality. Attendees heard the perspectives of both those on the front lines of patient safety as well as those outside of this issue in order to encourage new thinking about future priorities and directions for reducing medical errors and improving quality and efficiency of the U.S. health care system. A just-released IOM report on Improving Diagnosis in Health Care is the latest in the Quality Chasm Series.
